‘Le Sommeil’ by Madrassi*
Fabulous early Art Nouveau bronze by the highly regarded Italian sculptor Luca Madrassi (1848-1919).
Sometimes known as “Sleeping Nymph”, this is a truly gorgeous sculpture of a young semi-nude girl, sleeping with her head resting against the bough of a tree. The way the artist has captured the elegant and serene form of the subject is just superb.
Full of lovely detail – just look at the girl’s face, her fingers and toes and even the bark and leaves of the tree. It’s one of pieces that rewards you more each time you look at it.
Signed in the bronze and with a height of 43 cm.
