This is an exquisite bronze sculpture depicting a kneeling woman by Guy Charles Revol. Possibly another interpretation of Venus Kneeling, this young woman is kneeling on her left knee and resting her arms on her right knee, looking over her left shoulder. The piece is signed and numbered on the bronze base. The VALSUANI Foundry Mark is also visible on the base. This is a beautiful piece to showcase on its own.
“Guy Charles Revol was born 3 October 1912 , in Paris. He studied at the Beaux-Arts de Paris and was a sculptor, medallist, and designer. Revol won second prize in the Prix de Rome in 1937.
