This is a great Grand Tour bronze statue titled the Runner.The Greek originals were found in the Roman ruins of Herculaneum.This was produced during the latter part of the 1800's by the Fonderia Aristica Sabatino de Angelis & Fils Napoli Italy.They and Fonderia Chiurazzi were the 2 best of many foundries in Naples at the time.He stands 18 3/4 inches tall and the base is 10 1/2 by 4 3/4 inches.The bronze is in fantastic condition for its age with a nice deep brown patina. My photos show some dark area's but they are shadows from shooting outside.These Runner bronze's seem to be quite scarce.I could find no others for sale on the web.If you like classical sculpture this is as nice as you will find! The detail is outstanding.
