"Etoile de Matin" French Figural Bronze by Etienne Gaudez, 1845-1902
This is a period casting of a young woman, in windswept gown and with arm uplifted while standing on a celestial globe cast with the zodiac. In the Art Nouveau taste, she is allegorical of dawn as it appears across the globe. There is a posy at her feet, symbolic of spring and renewal. The bronze sits on a mottled turned red simulated marble base. It is well cast and a fine example of the Art Nouveau style.
