Guest Book

This fabulous bronze sculpture by Louis Marie Moris (1818-1883) depicts a young, deer-hunting nobleman from the era of Francis I (1494-1547), France's first renaissance king. It measures 20" wide, 23" high and 9" deep. Signed in the cast "Moris", and there is no foundry mark. Patina is a rust-brown. In the Benezit it reports that Moris (or Morise) was the pupil of Lequien and Pradier, and exhibited at the Paris Salong from 1857 to 1869. He is most famous for his life-size statue of himself on the family tomb in the Pere Lachaise cemetary in Paris. This item resides with our client in northern New Jersey and may be seen in person by appointment.
