French Art Nouveau Bust ‘La Moisson’*
French terracotta bust of a young farm girl titled La Moisson (The Harvest). Wearing a patterned bonnet with the loose ribbons faliing behind her head and a matching patterned cape over a laced bodice, she is also adorned with stems of the wheat she is harvesting.
With the typical Art Nouveau faraway look on her face, the young maiden is probably no older than fifteen or sixteen.
In lovely muted colours and marked and numbered verso although unsigned.
At first glance this bust looks to be of plaster but closer examination shows that it is in fact a superior version in terracotta.
A lovely, reasonably priced item of French Art Nouveau and in good vintage condition, around 52 cm high.
