IMPORTANT PLASTER MODEL OF THE EMPRESS MARIE-LOUISE EN

Lot 87021: IMPORTANT PLASTER MODEL OF THE EMPRESS MARIE-LOUISE EN

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: IMPORTANT PLASTER MODEL OF THE EMPRESS MARIE-LOUISE EN CONCORDE BY ANTONIO CANOVA (Italian, 1757-1822) 84 x 56 x 44 inches (213.4 x 142.2 x 111.8 cm) The cast attributed to Giovanni Battista Sartori and the architect Francesco Lazzari, 1832. Antonio Canova (1757-1822) was the pre-eminent sculptor of European Neoclassicism and exerted an influence in the world of sculpture every bit the equal to that of Jacques-Louise David in painting. After his early formation in Passagno and Venice, he received a pension from the Venetian Senate and moved to Rome. By 1800, he was the preferred sculptor of The Vatican, the Hapsburg Emperors, and Napoleon Bonaparte. It was, in fact, Napoleon who commissioned this sculpture of Marie-Louise, the eldest child of the Hapsburg Emperor Francis I. After a series of military victories over the Austrians, Napoleon was anxious to consolidate his success on the field of battle with a political alliance. In a word, he was anxious to marry a member of one of Europe's royal houses to consolidate his young empire. To this end, he married Marie-Louise in April 1811. Although she was raised to despise the French, the marriage was a fair success and she bore him a son, named the King of Rome. However, Napoleon's disastrous invasion of Russia in 1812 resulted in his defeat by the combined armies of the English and the Prussians in 1814 and his exile to Elba. Marie-Louise was awarded the Duchies of Parma. Piacenza, and Guastalla in the Treaty of Versailles. She returned to the court of her father and never saw Napoleon again. In 1809, Napoleon invited Canova to Paris and offered him the position of Superintendent of Beaux Arts. Canova declined the position, but spent the fall of 1810 between Paris and Fontainbleau where he had approximately six sessions with the reluctant young Empress-to-be. By the end of October, Canova proposed to Napoleon that he represent Marie-Louise "en Concorde" in the most beautiful carrara and as quickly as possible. Napoleon had already commissioned a work from the sculptor depicting his sister Elisa with the same attributes in 1809. Gerard Hubert, in his work "La Sculpture dan L'Italie Napoleonienne" (1964) speculates that Canova, very far advanced with the Elisa project, substituted the face of Marie-Louise with that of Elise. He was able to do this by using the terracotta and plaster sketches which he made at Fontainbleau. Today the marble version of "Marie-Louise en Concorde" is in the Pinacotheque of Parma and the plaster and terracotta sketches are in the Canova Museum in Passagno. Please note: This lot is in a professional art storage facility in New York City. It can be viewed by appointment through our New York office. Buyer will be responsible for pick-up at this facility.

SUPERB LIONESS FULL-BODY MOUNT

Lot 87052: SUPERB LIONESS FULL-BODY MOUNT

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: SUPERB LIONESS FULL-BODY MOUNT Panthera leo Africa The Lion is the largest Cat in Africa, considered almost a symbol of that continent. Amongst Big Cats worldwide is second only in length and weight to the Tiger. They are the only Cats that display obvious sexual dimorphism, which is to say that the male and female look distinctively different. Each sex fulfills a distinct role within the pride, which consists usually of five or six females and one or two males; the latter's reputation for laziness is not unfounded, as it is the female who plays the role of hunter for the group. This world-class mount of a fine, large female displays good taxidermy, and is presented in the most dynamic way. Fully stretched out in leaping attack mode, raised on a naturalistic base fitted with wheels, she measures 101 inches from the tip of the tail to the tip of the nose, over a finely-presented, stained pine-clad diorama base 85 5/8 inches long, 75 inches high overall.
