"Constant Roux - The Triumph Of Bacchus, Terracotta From The XIXth Century"Constant Roux - Group representing the triumph of Bacchus. He is surrounded by two women drinking and playing music around him and rests on a donkey. Two puttis surround the group and try to lead the donkey as best they can. We see at their feet a profusion of bunches of grapes. Beautiful quality of sculpture in good condition, no accidents to report. Signed on the terrace C. Roux for Constant Roux. Sculptor of the XIXth century, he was the pupil of Louis-Ernest Barrias during his beginnings. The latter presented him to the Prix de Rome competition where he obtained the first grand prize for sculpture thanks to his subject: Achilles beginning to put on the armor brought by his mother Thetis to avenge his friend Patroclus. Constant Roux married Joséphine Signoret, sister of his comrade Charles Signoret. This talented sculptor honored numerous important public commissions during his career for French or Monegasque monuments.
