AUGUSTE MOREAU (1834-1917) - "LES TRIOS BACCHANALES": This astonishing bronze, which is signed Moreau and we believe to be Auguste Moreau is in fine condition and measures 33" in height, by 25" at its widest point in diameter. It is beautifully rendered in very fine detail and depicts a Bacchanalian scene with three figures and a lot of grapes and holds its quality from every angle as can be seen in the images! This piece is perfect for a winery, where it will certainly become the centre of attention very quickly
Moreau is a well listed and highly collected French sculptor who died in 1917, and this is a late C19th piece. The sculpture was purchased in the 1970's in St. Louis from a museum that was closing and shipped to Canada where it now resides. A Provenance will be included with this beautiful piece of art.
An online research will evidence that far smaller and less attractive pieces by Moreau have sold for $30k! Needless to say, this sculpture is very, very heavy so will need to be crated and specially shipped. Please be aware of shipping costs before purchase. $13500.00
