"Terracotta Child Bust Attributed To Fernand Cian"
Charming bust of a child in terracotta from the early twentieth century in the style of the eighteenth.
this is a charming bust of a young boy wearing a ponytail wig.
the features are very finely rendered, the portrait is very realistic.
the artist created a charming face and groomed the clothes and the wig,
the facial expression is superb.
this bust rests on a beautiful pedestal in royal red marble.
on the back the bust bears the inscription "portrait of Monsieur le Marquis de Lubersac, Pajou fecit 1772". apparently Pajou's "original" is in the Portland museum.
our bust would therefore be a beautiful old copy by Fernand Cian whose exact name is Fernando Ciancianaini born in Italy in Carrara in 1889 and died in Paris in 1954.
sculptor known for his terracotta and in particular his busts of children, he was there pupil of the sculptor Alexandre Falguière and exhibited at the salon of French artists from 1907 to 1928.
in 1921 he obtained the honorable mention.
he is therefore famous for his busts of children in the spirit of the 18th century of good quality, sometimes signing them with his name or that of famous artists, antedating them.
the success is such that we find some of his works in museums in France and abroad.
these pastiches are therefore of very good quality and can maintain the illusion of their age, for example the bust of the Duke of Lesdiguière as a child is in the Louvre.
our bust perhaps attributed to Cian without any problem, it is superb with a very beautiful patina, much more beautiful in reality, a charming terracotta. we deliver and ship all over the world, please contact us for a precise quote.
