Description:
A patinated bronze figure: La Sorciere de Macbeth Jacques Louis Gautier (French, born 1831) mid-19th century With deep brown patina, inscribed L.J. Gautier to side of base, and Macbeth to front of base. height 22 3/4in (58cm) Footnotes Literature Pierre Kjellberg, Les Bronzes du XIXe Siecle , Les Editions de l'Amateur, 1987, ill. p. 354 Peter Fusco and H.W. Janson, The Romantics to Rodin , Los Angeles County Museum exh. cat., 1980, discussed p. 281 Shepherd Gallery, 19th Century French and Western European Sculpture in Bronze and Other Media , exh. cat., spring 1985, pp. 92-93, ill. no. 37B Originally conceived in 1853 as a caricature of one of the three witches featured in Shakespeare's play Macbeth , this expressive work became popular during the middle of the 19th century, and Lami notes that bronze models were produced for the Duchess of Alba and Napoleon III. However, according to Kjellberg, it has appeared only rarely at public sales since then. Gautier was a student of Francois Rude, the important early 19th century French sculptor. This piece should be considered a pendant for Gautier's equally macabre Mephistopheles .

Description:
catalogue note gautier modelled this extraordinary figure of mephistopheles in the early 1850's and sent it for display at the exposition universelle of 1855. its idiosyncratic design proved a success and soon after the firm of duplan et salles began to cast the model in bronze. busquet, a critic for the journal l'artiste was moved to write 'they have edited this strange mephistopheles with a long and grimacing profile which one can see, not without some surprise, in the showrooms of the principal stores in paris'. one customer was the duchess of alba, who acquired a cast for the cabinet of napoleon iii. gautier created an equally sinister pendant of a witch, entitled sorcière, inspired by shakespeare's macbeth. related literature romantics to rodin p.281, no.149 signed: j. gautier bronze, two-tone dark and mid brown patina
