This fine antique bronze portrait bust may have been sculpted by Auguste Rodin (French, 1840-1917).  This attribution is not certain, however.  We are currently working with the Comité Auguste Rodin in Paris to determine the subject of the artist.  Please click on the thumbnail images above to see additional views, and then click on any image to enlarge it.
 
The sculpture is finished with a patina in tones of black with amber undertones.  It is mounted onto a beautiful period marble base similar to those used by Rodin for his other portrait busts.  Including the marble, the sculpture stands 23" (58 cm) high.  The sculpture is signed "A. Rodin 1910" and the Perzinka foundry name is incised into the rear of the bronze.  Condition is very good, with minor patina loss consistent with its age.  
 
This very well might be an original Rodin bronze bust, and it was certainly cast during Rodin's lifetime.  It is rare to find such a fine artwork available for public purchase.  We guarantee your satisfaction.
