  • Date/Period: Period 1800
  • Materials: Carrara marble

  • Description: Magnificent Carrara marble bust depicting Juliette Récamier.The work comes from a private collection in Venice, 1800 period.The sculpture represents the bust of Jeanne Françoise Julie Adélaïde Bernard, better known as Juliette Récamier or Madame Récamier (Lyon, December 3, 1777 - Paris, May 11, 1849), a famous French parlourmaid in the era of the Directory and the First Empire. Juliette's family belonged to the Lyon bourgeoisie: her father, Jean Bernard, was a royal notable. Appointed director of finance, he moved to Paris with his family in 1786. Juliette's mother, an heiress with a rich dowry, was a worldly and intelligent woman. Madame Récamier's salon soon became the meeting place of an elite society, but did not fail to involve the upper echelons of power. Juliette's extraordinary beauty and charm earned her a large crowd of admirers. The refined lady was one of the first to adopt the "Greek taste" in clothing - simple dresses of semi-transparent muslin - and played a significant role in the spread of the taste for antiquity, later known as the Empire Style.In this very refined marble Juliette shyly lowers her gaze and holds a veil on her chest with both hands, covering her breasts in a gesture of great modesty and reserve. A slight smile hovers on her lips and her wavy hair is held back by a band in a high hairstyle. The work derives from the model made by the French sculptor Joseph Chinard (Lyon 12 February 1756 -20 June 1813).The work is of great value and quality. Magnificent patina and veining of the marble that expresses a sheen out of the ordinary.Perfect as a piece of furniture, also positioned above a column. Medium in size, proportionate and appropriate weight.Spectacular care and precision of detail, the finesse of the face, the clothes are of the highest quality.Is in excellent condition, intact.Will be shipped with wooden crate and adequate packaging.Cheap shipping, secure and traceable worldwide.Also available for pickup at our warehouse.Measures:- Height 69 cm- Base 18 x 18 cm- Width max 29 cm- Depth max 25 cmWeight 47 Kg.
