A lovely depiction of the Neoclassical taste, three putti can be seen playing with a goat. The terra cotta sculpture from the 1800’s has a variegated patination, with hues of dark ochre, gray, and cream.
Each putto is bedecked with a ring of grapevines around their waist. One putto sits atop the long-haired goat, using a long grapevine as a rein. A second putto lays on the ground, holding the end of the rein. The last putto is feeding the goat a handful of grapes. Grapes are scattered across the textured ground, which is dotted with grass and a stemmed grape cluster tied with a crinkled ribbon. The charming and highly decorative French statue of Bacchanalian putti playing with a goat can be displayed on a center or side table, or a console. Signed on the back side of the base by the artist.
CONDITION: Good antique condition with fleabites and light buildup. Minor rubs, resulting in loss of patination. Signed on the back side of the base.
