Description:
Signed and dated: FEUCHERE 1834 CATALOGUE NOTE For any modern student of 19th century Frenchsculpture, Jean-Jacques Feuchère's Satan has become one ofthe icons of the period, because it was selected as the front coverillustration of the pioneering exhibition The Romantics toRodin. French Nineteenth-Century Sculpture from North AmericanCollections in 1980. The relevance of Feuchère's Satan was graphically illustrated by the selection of Rodin'sThinker for the back cover of the catalogue.For Peter Fusco, writing the entry for the bronze in theexhibition, the Satan 'epitomizes the interests of Romanticsculptors'. The 1830s witnessed a plethora of sculptures on asatanic theme, including works by Jean-Jacques Flatters, CarloMarochetti, Jean- Bernard Duseigneur and Antonin Moine. Many sharedthe common inspirations of Milton, Dante and Goethe. Amongst thelater sculptures influenced by Feuchère's Satan , Fusco listsDuret's Chactas Meditating on the Tomb of Atala , Carpeaux'searly masterpiece Ugolino , Joseph Geefs' Angel ofEvil and, of course, Rodin's Thinker. Exhibited at the Salon in 1834, Feuchère's Satan was highly praised: 'among all the angels and demons, there is onefigure that incontestably merits particular attention because ofthe original character it has been imprinted with, because of thenovelty of its composition and the conscientious craftsmanship withwhich it is rendered, it is the Satan of M. Feuchère, apersonification, with plenty of verve and ardour, of the evilgenius at odds with being powerless.'At the time of the Romantics to Rodin exhibition in 1980,the 78.7cm high bronze shown there was the only large cast known toFusco and Janson. Since then only one or two more casts haveappeared on the market, which underlines the fact that large castsof this model are extremely rare.RELATED LITERATUREDecamps, p. 74; Romantics to Rodin, p. 266-267, no. 137; Von Houdonbis Rodin, pp. 112-113, no.14

Following its appearance in the Romantics to Rodin exhibition (1980), this model of Leda and the Swan has often been attributed to James Pradier.

Description:
catalogue note feuchère's satan is a synthesis of both literary and artistic sources but mainly from milton's paradise lost, dante's inferno and dürer's melancolia (a copy of which feuchère owned). the broken sword and isolating canopy formed by the wings symbolise satan after his fall. feuchère's composition masterfully conveys satan's angst-ridden frame of mind, as he sits with hunched back, one leg clamped over the other and biting his fingers with a downward dejected stare. the model was first exhibited in plaster at the 1834 salon and in bronze the following year. related literature un age d'or, pp.305-06; romantics to rodin, cat.no.137 signed and dated: j feuchere 1833 bronze, dark brown patina

Description:
Jean-Jacques Feuchère (French, 1807-1852) Satan bronze, dark-brown patina; on variegated green marble plinth 8¼ in. (21 cm.) high, the bronze with Joanna Barnes Fine Arts, London, 1996. Literature Exhibition catalogue, Un Age d'Or des Arts Décoratifs 1814-1848, Galeries nationales du Grand Palais, Paris, 1991, pp.305-6 (another cast). P. Fusco, H. W. Janson ed., Exhibition catalogue, The Romantics to Rodin, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Los Angeles, 1980, cat. no. 137 (a larger cast). Lot Notes As with many of the Romantic sculptors, Feuchère drew inspiration from literary works such as Dante's Inferno, Milton's Paradise Lost and Goethe's Faust. He also owned a copy of Dürer's famous engraving of Melancolia. Satan was first exhibited in plaster at the Salon in 1833 (no. 2037), and then in bronze in 1835 (no. 2243; now in the Musée de Douai). The image of the seated melancholic creature, biting his nails and with dejected stare, was singled out for special praise by critics, and may have even influenced later artists and work such as Carpeaux's Ugolin and Rodin's Thinker.
