AFTER EUGENE MARIOTON (1854-1933) - REF No. 1063
H: 26 in / 66 cm
After Eugene Marioton (1854-1933), a patinated bronze model of a youth called 'Victorious Archer', the partially draped figure portrayed standing and with an arrow-filled quiver over his shoulder, holding a branch in the raised right hand.
The present model, which possibly depicts Cupid as a young man, closely relates to the more famous 'Vainqueur' by Marioton, who also raises a laurel branch.
See for example Christie's Amsterdam, 19th and 20th century Sculpture, 17 November 2004, lot 441 for this similar piece.
