Jean-Baptiste Carpeaux (1827-1875) The fisherman with a shell n°3 Bronze with a brown-red patina Signed and dated " JB. Carpeaux. Rome. 1857 " Bears the mark " PROPRIETE CARPEAUX " and the imperial eagle H. 35 cm Inspired to the artist by a young Neapolitan crossed on the beach of Naples in 1856 and realized in Rome a year later, this iconic work of Carpeaux is also a tribute to his teachers Rude and Duret who also treated the subject in the 1830s. The anecdotal subject matter imbued with vivid and cheerful naturalism brings a new breath of fresh air to 19th century sculpture.
