This portrait bust of Francois-Marie Arouet, known as Voltaire, was sculpted by famed artist Jean-Antoine Houdon (French, 1741-1828).   The sculpture has been finely cast and boasts excellent detail.  It makes a stately addition to any library or bookshelf.  Please click on the thumbnail images above to see additional views, and then click on any image to enlarge it.
 
We have cast this fine bust of Voltaire in our own California art foundry using 38 lbs. (17 kg) of pure bronze.  The sculpture is finished with a classic patina in tones of browns.  Mounted onto a circular bronze socle, the bust stands 19¼" high by 8" wide (49 cm high x 20 cm wide).  The original foundry name, F. Barbedienne, is inscribed into the rear of the bronze, and we have cast in our Art Bronze foundry seal.  
 
You will not find a finer bronze sculpture of Voltaire.  This is truly a fine work of bronze art that will endure to be enjoyed by many generations to come.  We guarantee your satisfaction.
