Bronzes of the 19th Century: Dictionary of Sculptors. Atglen: Schiffer Publishing, Co., 1994, same model illustrated, p. 228. Notes: While still a student at l'Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris in 1872, Coutan was the recipient of the prestigious Prix de Rome, which afforded him the opportunity to study in Italy for several years. Upon his return to Paris, he had his debut at the Paris Salon to much attention and acclaim. One of the most sought-after artists for grand public commissions, Coutan was known for his elegant allegorical sculptures. The wonderful bas-relief plaque presented here of an allegorical depiction of victory as a winged figure on horseback reveals the sculptor at his most masterful; the taut yet subtle muscles of the horse's legs, the delineated feathers of the wings, and the delicate modeling which creates an interplay of light and shadow, creating a sense of depth and motion. Coutan was named a professor of art at l'Ecole des Beaux-Arts in 1900.

signed: Jules Coutan, inscribed: THIÉBAUT FRÈRES. PARIS. bronze, silver and gilt patina and ivory, on onyx base

CATALOGUE NOTE
Jules-Félix Coutan's highly successful career began with his winning the Prix de Rome in 1871. He contributed to the sculptural decoration of many of Paris' most important buildings such as the Hôtel de Ville and the Palais de Justice, alongside international work including a pediment in New York's Grand Central Station and a monument to Carlos Pelligrini in Buenos Aires. Reduced versions of his allegorical groups secured a lasting private audience for his work. Like Gérôme, Coutan took part in the contemporary vogue for coloured and multi-material sculpture as witnessed in the present silvered bronze and ivory figure.
