Provenance

This lot is described on reference 132 in the valuation of the estate of the Prince Marc de Beauvau in 1883 (French National Archives AN.MC/ET/L/1385). It was located in the grand salon of his house on 34 avenue Montaigne in Paris.

Catalogue Note

This group of Venus and Cupid recalls the stylistic features of the female subjects of the Viennese sculptor Adam Lenckhardt (1610-1661), such as his Cleopatra in the Walters Art Museum of Baltimore (inv. No. 71.416) or his group of Venus and Cupid in the Reiner Winkler collection (circa 1650-1660).
