Among the most celebrated sculptors of the nineteenth century, Émile Louis Picault (French, 1833 - 1915) participated in the creation of several major public monuments, including the Paris Opera House and the Gare du Norde. His patriotic, allegorical, and orientalist works were reproduced for private homes and can be found in the Musée d'Orsay, Musée du Luxembourg. This pair of monumental statues of two women holding large, lamped candelabras stand on bronze bespoke pedestals. The quality of the casting and the fine chasing of the figures indicates the works were overseen by Picault himself and cast with his preferred foundry, Susse Freres, in Paris.

Dimensions: 93 x 13 x 13 in.
