A 1900s Neo-Renaissance bronze decorative piece
The Neo-Renaissance style surfaced and flourished during the 1840s and by 1890s
it already started to decline. Our antique piece, dating from the 20th century,
situates itself later then the first signs of disinterest in the style. On behalf of the
artist, this represents an act of stubbornness (stoutness) in the face of changes and
mutations of perspective in art.
The design itself is strongly correlated to the subject of time. The bas-relief created
at the base of the sculpture sends to the theme of the four seasons, while the great
egret ruling at the top is a symbol of successful journeys.
