Auguste Moreau bronze cherub sculpture titled Amour Sifflant circa 1900. Measures 27 inches tall, excellent condition. Bio from Ask Art and mirgallery.com: Auguste Moreau (1834-1917) was born in Paris, the youngest son of sculptor and painter Jean-Baptiste Moreau. He studied with his father and also under Aimé Millet, Augustin Drumont and Jean Thomas. Each of the three Moreau brothers - Hippolyte, Marthurin and Auguste - have become renowned for the quality and the beauty of their figurative sculpture. In 1861, Auguste made his debut at the Salon where he would exhibit regularly until 1913. His subjects were primarily young maidens or allegorical and genre scenes incorporating cupids and young children. His style was realistic and graceful, revealing his relation to the other members of the Moreau family. His compositions encapsulate a feeling of innocence while incorporating an air of mischievous game.
