Description

Jean-Antoine Houdon (French, 17411828), the preeminent sculptor of the French Enlightenment, was beloved for his depictions of children, of which one of the most enchanting is the head of his ten-month-old daughter, Sabine. Houdon created this marble sculpture in Paris in 1788. The delicate naturalistic folds of flesh at the intersection of Sabines chest and arms are carved with a melting softness that perfectly captures the tenderness of infant flesh. Her alert, unsentimentalized features present a personality which transcends the traditional norms of childrens portraits. The skillful original is the source for our exquisite reproduction.

Cast marble. Hand patinated. 9"L x 13-1/2"H x 6"D including base.
