moreA handsome figural bronze sculpture of La Science cast after a model by Edouard Drouot, the work depicts a strong female with her head raised high, an air of dignity and pride in her features as she stands only partially revealed to the viewer. A book clasped in the crook of her arm is incised in Latin "Labor Improbus Omnia Vincit" [Labor Conquers All] and her other hand grasps a quill. The classical robes and twisted and curled around her legs beautifully and the surface of her face and hands is cross-hatched and finely chased to create a lovely overall texturing. It is signed in his typical script "E. Drouot" and cold-stamped "Copyright". There are two nearly illegible areas of cold stamping that appear to read Tiffany & Co, perhaps originally intended for retail with them but due to the poorly completed cold-stamp it was likely sold elsewhere; the quality of the surface and finishing would certainly be in line with expectations of Tiffany for pieces edited for their clients.
This is a notably large example of Edouard Drouot's work - a powerful presentation piece.
