    A bronze replica of the Bather sculpture by Jules Dalou (1838-1902), a French sculptor noted as one of the most brilliant virtuosos of nineteenth-century France. The replica measures 19.5cm tall.

    Following the example of Allegrain and Falconet (18th century French sculptors), Dalou continued to study the theme of the Bathers by adding a naturalistic touch - a movement of which he was one of the leaders at the end of the 19th century.

    The workers and peasants that he would later study so passionately had not yet become the subject of his work. While in England, where he was in exile because of his revolutionary opinions, he started to model intimate scenes of women rocking or breast-feeding their babies, reading or bathing. These subjects soon attracted art lovers in England.

    Dalou's travels to Belgium and the masterpieces he discovered there led him to soften and develop his forms. This delicate study, the original plaster of which is in the Petit Palais Museum in Paris, appears to belong to this period.
