Catalogue Note

The freshness in the modeling of the hair and the fine features of the face of this Bacchante are characteristics of the works of Marin, one of the most skilled pupils of the famous Clodion, and allow to attribute this little bust to the sculptor. An almost identical version was formerly in the Marius Paulme collection (his sale in Paris, May 15, 1929, No. 337).
