moreA very striking study of a fox, this is the only model of a fox produced by Emmanuel Fremiet who characterizes the animal in his typical playful and lighthearted manner. "Renard d'Egypte" captures a slinky and restive fox in a moment of repose, though the anxious animal can never quite seem to be totally at peace - he appears crouched and ready in a moments notice to spring forward. A removal from the typical depiction of a wily creature, this fox is majestic and confident with an intelligence cast in his features that is difficult to isolate and capture as an artist. The patina is complex with a wonderful range of golds beneath a warm brown.
It remains an exquisite selection for any serious collector of animalier sculptures. A rather rare object, this model is very infrequently found on the open market and remains in pristine original condition. It is in exceedingly fine original condition. There is some dust in crevices.
