Antique Gilded Bronze Statue with Marble Base from Belgium, Circa 1900

Souvenirs from Venice: The Pigeons of Saint Mark

A 5 foot high copy of the original resides in the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium. Charles Brunin (1875-1893).

This stunning gilt bronze statue depicts a man with a pigeon on his shoulder. He is sitting upon a post with a nautical rope going through the ring on the pier. The artist’s ability to sculpt figures very realistically is superb. He has also portrayed emotion very well as seen on the statue’s face when interacting with the pigeon.  The gilt bronze on this statue is very finely done, with the skin of the man shown in a lighter gold than the rest of the statue.  The statue rests upon a shaped marble base. It is signed on the right hand side of the statue. This magnificent gilt bronze statue will be the focal point in any room.

CONDITION: Very good with minor rubs and scratches, minor spots to finish.
