# 4626. A bronze statue of a Classical Male. Artist: Louis Rochet. 19th century. Size: 17.5" tall. Base footprint: 5.25" x 7.25". Condition: the horns are bent and the surface has been patinated a long time ago with what appears to be gold paint. Inscribed: "To Professor Harry Burnes Hutchins Retiring Associate Dean as a token of love and respect from the members of the Cornell University School of Law 1894-95." Information about this fine French Sculptor is as follows: b Paris, 24 Aug 1813; d Paris, 21 Jan 1878). French sculptor and anthropologist. Rochet studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris under Pierre-Jean David d’Angers, but withdrew from the Prix de Rome competition to pursue Oriental languages (especially Chinese) and natural history, at the same time providing models for commercial sculpture. He returned to monumental sculpture in 1838 and followed the example of David d’Angers in sculpting commemorative statues for the provinces, such as Marshal Drouet d’Erlon (bronze, 1844–9; Reims, Place de la Couture). Rochet distinguished himself in the costumed pageantry of figures from earlier French history, such as the equestrian William the Conqueror (bronze, 1846–51; Falaise, Hôtel de Ville), the Marquise de Sevigné (bronze, 1857; Grignan) or Charlemagne Accompanied by Roland and Olivier (bronze, 1853–67; erected 1878, Paris, Place du Parvis Notre Dame). The most popular of these historical re-creations was Napoleon Bonaparte as a Student at Brienne (plaster, exh. Salon, 1853; marble, exh. Exposition Universelle, 1855; bronze, 1855, erected 1859; Brienne, Hôtel de Ville). The bronze monument to Don Pedro I of Brazil (1855–62; Rio de Janeiro) involved Rochet in anthropological and zoological research, as its granite base was enriched by sculptures of groups of natives and local fauna, symbolizing South American rivers. A historicizing approach to style, first used by Rochet in his colossal bronze Notre Dame de Myans, erected near Chambéry in 1855, re-emerged in a later series of Classical subjects, initiated by the ‘Archaic’ Minerva (plaster, gilded bronze and silver plated, exh. Salon 1864). Signature inscribed on the plateau base. Price: $3,500.00.


# 4458. A Contemporary porcelain figure of Minotaur who was the bull headed monster in the Cretan Labyrinth and was the offspring of Pasiphae, wife of Minos. Size: 11.5" tall. Condition: The Minotaur is holding a small bird in his right hand and one of the two wings appears to be broken; the wing if it was even there was inside the figures closed hand. This exceptional well designed and decorated figure was created by Kati Zorn and was produced at the Aelteste Volkstedter Porzellanmanufaktur in Thuringia Germany. Fully marked. Price: $1,750.00.


# 4159. A German Porcelain figure of Pan playing his pipe. The form has 10 holes surrounding the figure in the rock outcropping meant to hold flower stems, so the figure was originally placed in a dish or bowl of water. Realistic colors of moss and rock support the pan. Size: app. 8.5" tall. Mark for the Company: Muller & Co. Volkstedt - 1907-1949. Condition: loss to gold paint decoration; no porcelain loss or repairs. Price: $950.00.


# 3502. A bronze figure of Pan playing his pipes sitting on a decorative urn. Size: 10.5" tall. On a footed antique verde marble base. Exceptionally well detailed. Aged patina. Age: probably late 19th century and possibly earlier. Also possibly a model for a larger garden item. Allard of Paris decorated many of the Newport Rhode Island Cottages and this statue could have been a model for a very large garden statue. We purchased this from a Newport Rhode Island Estate Auction about 15 years ago. Condition: small discoloration on the bronze base at the foot of the urn. There are no foundry marks or signatures on this bronze of a young nude boy pan. Probably European: French; German; Austrian, etc. Price: $2,500.00.
