Large patinated bronze subject representing "Diana the Huntress", the goddess of hunting, war and night in Roman mythology. Diana (Artemis in Greek) is walking, holding a small deer by the antlers with her left hand and catching an arrow from her quiver which she slings over her back with the other. Diana is wearing a tunic, sandals, and a tiara with her wavy hair tied at the nape of her neck. Stamp "Réduction mécanique A. Collas" and signature "F. Barbedienne Fondeur".

 

A Roman marble copy of "Diana the Huntress" or "Diana of Versailles", from the imperial period (2nd century) resides in the Louvre Museum. The Greek original in bronze was made in the 4th century B.C. It is generally attributed to the Athenian sculptor Leochares. The Maison Barbedienne, founded in 1834 by Ferdinand Barbedienne (1810-1892), is considered one of the largest bronze art companies in France in the 19th century.
