Auguste Nicolas Cain (1822-1894) French

Fighting Birds

Silvered Bronze £795

You have to be careful not to cut your finger on the beak and wing it is so sharply cast.

Made in two sections. Missing base.

Auguste Nicolas CaIn ( 1821-1894) was a noted French sculptor in the Animaliers school, known for his portrayals of wild and domesticated animals. Cain was born in Paris, and studied under Rude, Guionnet, and Pierre-Jules Mene (whose daughter he married in 1852). Between 1846-1888, Caïn exhibited 38 models at the Salon. From 1868 onwards he concentrated on monuments, including the Chiens de meute at the Chateau de Chantilly, Le Lion de Nubie et sa proie in the Jardin du Luxembourg, and Tigress and Peacock in the Gardens of the Tuileries. In 1879 he assumed management of his father-in-laws foundry upon Menes death. Henri Caïn, a well known librettist, and Georges Cain, the painter, were his sons.

This piece is illustrated page 998 Bronzes Sculptors and Founders  1800-1930. Vol IV by Harold Berman. No 3858

There is always a certain symbolism within the pieces cast by Louchet.

Bathing Venus more widely known as The Crouching Venus. 

This study, after the antique and was cast mid 19th century.

The Crouching Venus has been excavated on numerous different Roman sites, in Italy and in France. There are slightly differing versions. But one thing that never changes is the fact that the study captures Venus at he bath, startled, and she very often is depicted with her arm slightly raised to cover her breasts.

 She has been an inspiration to sculptures and artists for centuries.

There are, among others, examples in The Louvre Paris, The Uffizi in Florence and The British Museum has an example.

She is Hellenistic in style and has influenced so many artists such as Rubens who painted an 'Allegory' 1612-13, after he saw The Lely Venus then in The Gonzaga collection at mantua.

This example bears its foundry seal.

Sean Rice Sculptor Read More Here 

Sean Rice was comissioned many times by The Church. He has work, in many public institutions.

 He has commissioned work in The Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral of Christ The King where he sculpted, The Stations Of The Cross.

I presume this large Bronze sculptor is Abraham and The Sacrificial RAM and may have been a sculpture he was working on just before his death.

It is solid bronze and is approximately 56cm high. 

Sean Rice understood the human figure and its anatamony and so was able to stretch every sinew in this interpretation.

And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind him a ram caught in a thicket by his horns: and Abraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead of his son.
