This gorgeous 19th century French bronze sculpture continues to be one of the most treasured sculptures of today.
 
The sculpture depicts a victorious David resheathing his sword after slaying Goliath, whose head lies on the ground beneath David's foot.  The artwork was originally sculpted by the French master Marius-Jean-Antonin Mercié (1845-1916).  David Vainqueur, also known as David After the Combat, earned Mercié a Medal of the First Class, and the Croix de la Légion d' Honneur, making him the only artist to receive it while still a student.  A casting was commissioned by the French state and exhibited at the 1873 World Exhibition.  This example is today to be found in the Musée d' Orsay in Paris. 
 
We have cast David Vainqueur in our own California art foundry using 67 lbs. (30 kg) of pure bronze.  The sculpture is finished with a classically rich patina in tones of browns and black.  It stands 36" high by 16½" wide (92 cm high x 42 cm wide).  The sculpture is signed "A Mercie" and carries our foundry seal in its bronze base.  Please click on the thumbnail images above to see additional views.
 
This is a fine bronze sculpture, made to the highest standards.  We guarantee your satisfaction.
