A fine & large (34" tall) antique French gilt-bronze on marble column of Diana, cast by Ferdinand Barbedienne (1810-1892) after a statue by Jean Antoine Houdon (1741-1828), the bronze circa 1838.
This very elegant neo-classical bronze depicts Diana the Huntress carrying a bow and arrow, she is raised on a black marble column with an ornate Corinthian capital and a corresponding bronze plinth. The top of the column is signed "F. Barbedienne Fondeur" and also "Houdon".
Ferdinand Barbedienne and Achille Colas (1795-1859) in 1838 developed a process to make very high quality bronze statues. This is a very early example from the beginning of their partnership.
The bronze is very beautiful, it is in very good condition, with no damage or restoration.
