Emmanuel Villanis – ‘Javotte’

French art nouveau bronze bust c.1900 mounted on a green marble base. I believe this piece to be ‘Javotte’ by Emmanuele Villanis although it is signed ‘Moigniez’ – (Jules Moigniez 1835 – 1894), although Moigniez was primarily an animalier sculptor and his death preceded the date of this piece. This same piece with a different base, signed by Villanis is shown in the Schiffer book of artists and she has the unmistakable features of the Villanis females.

Condition is good.

9.5 inches (24cm) tall.
