Candelabra - Naturalist candelabra after Auguste Cain

Ask a question

Naturalist candelabra after Auguste CainA pair of gilt bronze naturalists candlesticks with three lights, topped by Dionysus (Bacchus for the Romans) and probably a Maenad. The drum is decorated with a snail and a shrew in haut-relief. The circular base with three legs topped by three crickets and decorated with ivy and berries. At the end of the nineteenth century, the taste for naturalism with sculpturors like Antoine-Louis Barye, Auguste Cain and Pierre-Jules Mêne takes place in decorative objects. Illustrations: Dionysus is represented wearing the skin of a fawn he holds in one hand and the other the thyrsus, its main attribute. The Maenad (Bacchante in Roman) in an active position, twirling her hands on her chest, refer to Bacchanalia. They were held in honor of Dionysus-Bacchus, god of wine, drunkenness and misbehavior, including sexual. The theme of Bacchanalia is coherent with naturalism.Circa :1860Dim: W: 7,5 in - D: 7,5in - H: 19,7in.Dim: L:19cm, P:19cm, H:50cm.Bibliography:
