You are viewing a bronze study depicting what is believed to be a Roman foot soldier. This superb Sculpture is signed by Georges Gardet (1863 - 1939) who was born in Paris, France on October 11th 1863. He was a highly talented sculptor whose early studies were with his sculptor father, Joseph, and Aime Millet. He was influenced early in his career by the works of Emmanuel Fremiet whom Gardet studied under at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts. Big game animals fascinated Gardet and his detailed treatment of these subjects is reflected in this interest. His fascination with animals was not limited to just the large wild ones as he did a number of small works of domestic animals and even a few private commissions of "pets" also. Occasional glimpses of the late Barye\\\'s influence are found in the treatment of his combat groups as can be seen in this bronze.
The sculpture for sale here is of a warrior with shield and sword and traditional armour, apparently Gardet did a series of these in 1922 for an exhibition. A truly superb piece for the decorator dealer or discerning individual. Good luck!
