A Bronze Bust of a Gentleman by Charles-Henri Joseph Cordier


This French bronze bust, which sits on a black marble socle, is a distinguished depiction of an older mustached gentleman in a three-piece suit. Through the juxtaposition of surface treatments - between the man's textured hair, his smooth skin, and the creased material of his clothing - Cordier achieves richly varied textures that exemplify the naturalistic rendering of the sculpture.

15 ¼ x 11 ½ x 5 ¼ in.
