ITALIAN
NYMPH WITH A SCORPION

Catalogue Note

This beautiful marble is a rare reduction of one of Bartolini's iconic models: his Nymph with a Scorpion. Conceived in 1837, the model was exhibited in marble at the Paris Salon of 1845 to great acclaim. With his Nymph, Bartolini imbues his restrained classicism with a naturalism seen particularly in the girl's slight grimace and contorted pose, provoked by the scorpion's sting. Prime versions of the model are in the Musée du Louvre, Paris (inv. no. R.F. 4451) and in the Hermitage Museum, Saint Petersburg (inv. no. Н.ск-155).
