A hot cast bronze (no resin) sculpture inspired by sculptor Antoine Louis Barye (1796-1875).
The power of Barye's Theseus Slaying a Centaurlies in the brilliant contrasts of man and beast.
Theseus is every bit the mythological hero powerful and restrained. His mouth tightly closed, he calmly looks down at the centaur, who grimaces in pain.
The Romantic artists often depicted the turning point in a tale, as Barye did in this sculpture.
Bayre captures the climactic moment when Theseus is about to lower his club to destroy the writhing centaur.Greek mythology and art experienced a great revival in much of Europe during the late 1700s and 1800s.
The twisting pose and powerful emotion of Barye's sculpture of Theseus are typical of the French Romantic style Mounted on a solid piece of marble with protective felt on the underside. A true investment for anyone interested in good quality art.
The signature on the bronze reads Barye.
