Splendid black patinated bronze sculpture of a lioness titled “Lionne Rugissante” by the French animalier Irénée Rochard (b. 1906).
The powerful looking animal is crouching down on its front legs and roaring at something that has obviously caught her attention.
Rochard studied at the Beaux-Arts School where he was a first prize winner, and he sometimes sculpted his subjects in a carefully stylised manner. This can be seen here and is fairly typical of his better work.
Set on a dark marble plinth with a length and width of around 40X12 cm, the tail of the animal extending roughly 4.5 cm beyond the end of the plinth.
Dating from around 1930-35.
