A Florentine Lady

Description Conservation Provenance Credit
Description A lady carved of ivory wears a silver-gilt lace collar set with pearls. She recalls images of Marie de' Medici (1573-1642), the queen of France, as painted by the Flemish 17th-century masters Peter Paul Rubens and Frans Pourbus the Younger. Moreau-Vauthier who sculpted in bronze, marble, and terracotta, is especially known for his work in ivory and chryselephantine (a combination of ivory and silver or gold). An eclectic sculptor, he was equally adept at the Gothic, Renaissance, and Rococo styles.
