Item Description:

This is a 20th century bronze "Girl with Shell" SCULPTURE, after Jean Baptiste Carpeaux, depicting a girl crouching while playing with a shell.

The original sculpture was created after the success of Carpeaux's "Fisherboy".  Early examples, are always also stamped with a foundry mark, but this only has the imprint of J.Carpeaux in script.

This is a well executed Bronze piece weighing 17 pounds and measuring 11.5 inches in height, 6 inches deep and 5 inches wide.  The marble base is 4 inches in height and 6 inches in diameter making the total height as 15.5 inches. This piece was appraised for $1000.

Jean-Baptiste Carpeaux moved to Paris in 1838 and studied at the Petite Ecole before entering the Ecole des Beaux-Arts ten years later. There he studied with the Romantic sculptor, Francois Rude. In 1854, Carpeaux won the Prix de Rome and traveled to Italy to study ancient sculpture and also the work of Michelangelo and other Renaissance artists. In 1860, he introduced his sculpture Ugolino, which emphasized extreme emotional and physical states in contrast to the calmness of classical sculpture. With this piece, his reputation as the foremost sculptor of his time was founded. Carpeaux returned to Paris in 1862 and began creating portrait busts for famous clients, such as Napoleon and his court. His work had a strong affect on the young Auguste Rodin. Carpeaux also was a painter.
