"Bronze "the Horses Of Marly" After The Sculptor Coustou, Late 19th Century"
Beautiful bronze sculpture, "The Horses of Marly", representing a prancing horse held by a groom.
The horse has a tousled mane and it struggles to escape the man, a young Native American slave. He is represented simply wearing a tied loincloth. He retains the animal by his reins.
We will notice the strength of the movement of the bodies in tension in this bronze group with a very beautiful brown patina.

Historical Annecdote :
“Les Chevaux de Marly” are two groups sculpted in Carrara marble made by Guillaume Coustou between 1743 and 1745.
Installed in the gardens of Château de Marly in 1745, they were then transferred to Place de la Concorde in 1794. Weakened by the annual parades of armored vehicles on July 14, these two sculptures were finally replaced by copies in 1984. The originals were left behind. found today in the Louvre.
