Item #2350

“Heroine” by Theophile Francois  Somme is a dramatic and richly detailed art nouveau sculpture in bronze and chryselephantine created circa 1920. This exceptional piece has finely carved facial features and wonderful use of patinated bronze to create the sweep of fabric. The statue sits on a carved marble base.
