Pair of French 18th Century Bronze Soldiers Signed ‘H. Dumaige’

Item Number: 151MP

Fine 18th Century bronze figures of a military drummer and a soldier loading his musket. Both bronzes are placed on a square shallow plinth base with titled plaques and are signed to the side H. Dumaige The soldier with drum features a plaque that reads, “Avant le Combat, Volontaire de 1792, par D J Maige," signifying the scene before battle. He is captured in motion, seen especially in the lifted heel. The war is set to begin shortly. The soldier with musket features a plaque that reads, “Apres le Combat, Volontaire de 1792, par D J Maige," notating that this is a scene after war. Hist stature is remarkably reflective of what has passed. He stands firm footed with shoulders at attention, yet eyes closed as if having a moment of solitude as the war is over. The juxtaposition and pairing of the two adds immensely to the beauty and craftsmanship of each individual bronze.

Pair of French 18th Century Bronze Statues of Satyrs, Signed Clodion

Item Number: 126MP

This magnificent matched pair of bronze figures was created by the well known bronzier Clodion in the late 18th century. The pair is a fantastic reflection of Clodion’s skill and celebration of the Rococo style. Here, we see a pair of satyrs strolling in the woods next to a stump of a tree, smiling joyously at one another. Each holds a bronze d’ore horn with a round end and a musical instrument. On one side we see Pan, the chief of the satyrs, with his flute. On the other side we see a female satyr with a tambourine. In Greek mythology, satyrs were known as wild spirits of nature and were shown as half human and half beast. Looking at the details of the fur, the balance of the figures, and the beauty of the garlands, we see Clodion’s impressive talent on full display.
