Bronze pan after the revered Clodion (1738-1814)
This delightful bronze sculpture is after the 18th century original by Claud Clodion (1738-1814). The boy with goat's legs is dancing and is captured here on one leg. It is a charming reference to the Classical World, and is satisfying "in the round": it is equally good from any angle, rather than having a front. The patina is verdigris rather than the usual blackish brown, retaining a sense of the lightness of dance and music. This is in our cabinets at Camberwell Antique Centre, along with various other bronze and spelter figures, mostly of a classical, Grand Tour persuasion. 13 cm tall.
