19th C French bronze by Edouard Drouot 1859-1945

19th C - 1910 - French bronze by Edouard Drouot 1859-1945. "The Harvester," Exposition of Beaux-Arts medallion (seal #91). Marble base. Listed artist - Benezets, Albacete Encyclopedia (H. Berman), Davenports Encyclopedia.

Born in Sommevoire (Haute - Marne) 1859. Died Paris 1945.

Drouot studied in Paris under Emile Thomas and Matherin Moreau and worked as a genre painter and sculptor. He won a third class medal at the Salon of 1892 and a honorable mention at the Exposition Universelle of 1900 for his work entitled L'Amateur, a life size marble submitted to the Paris Salon of 1893.

Drouot had a vast repertory, a variety of themes, and a sense of movement and expression which made this artist an outstanding member of the sculpture community at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th Century. His Salon entries encompassed sporting and hunting scenes, exotic Eastern subjects mythological figures, nymphs and whimsical allegories. There is always an underlying penchant for the fluidity of the Art Nouveau movement in his subjects and a recurrent ability to arrest movement and expression with a touch of genius.
