Price Upon Request
  • Description
    An important and very charming stone group of a child watching over his sleeping companion, in the spirit of the "Marmousets" along the "Allee d'Eau" and the sculptures of children adorning the four corners of the square pond at the gardens of Chateau de Versailles. The sensitive execution and the dynamic composition are reminiscent of the work of the Flemish - Frenchsculptor Gerard van Opstal (1605-1668).
    Our pieces are left in lived-in condition, pending our custom conservation.
    On consignment from a sophisticated collector.
