Carson City, NV, USALive Auction
Description: Antique Bronze Sculpture Of A Boy Musketeer Holding A Torch. Condition Report: Needs Wax/Oil Wick Insert. Provenance: Palm Beach Estate Estimated more than 200 yrs old. French art consists of the visual arts, architecture, woodwork, textiles, and ceramics. Modern France was the main centre for the European art of the Upper Paleolithic, then left many megalithic monuments, and in the Iron Age many of the most impressive finds of early Celtic art. The Gallo-Roman period left a distinctive provincial style of sculpture, and the region around the modern Franco German border led the empire in the mass production of finely decorated Ancient Roman pottery, which was exported to Italy and elsewhere on a large scale. With Merovingian art the story of French styles as a distinct and influential element in the wider development of the art of Christian Europe begins. France can fairly be said to have been a leader in the development of Romanesque art and Gothic art, before the Italian Renaissance led to Italy replacing France as the main source of stylistic developments until the age of Louis XIV, when France largely regained this role, holding it until the mid 20th century.
