Goddess of the Stars*

Item Description

Fabulous and very large Art Nouveau bronze, probably of the goddess Asteria (“of the stars”) by the celebrated French sculptor Jean-Baptiste Germain (1845-1910).  The photographs unfortunately just don’t do justice to this really lovely sculpture.

Depicting the partially draped beauty resting against a star and pointing upwards towards the heavens.  The detail in the casting is superb and this is one of the most impressive bronzes we’ve been fortunate enough to come across.

Signed to the base, Germain JB and with minted founders seal ‘Bronze Garanti au titre deposeĆ© L.V’.   There are also impressed numbers which appear to be a circled 7 followed by 193.

The height to the subject’s outstretched finger is virtually 91 cm and the greatest width is around 41 cm.  Absolutely stunning.
