Terracotta bacchante kid's head.

Placed on a column base in red Morello cherry marble and a square counter base in black marble. Gilt bronze ornamentation.

Height with the base: 30 cm
Very appreciated by amateurs, the artist modelled many small busts of bacchantes and vestals, varying their presentation, in antique or natural, in a style that varies greatly depending on the period. Far from the neo-classicism with which
MARIN seems less at ease, he takes up here a manner more related to the art of the 18th century, with a greater sensuality.
