CATALOGUE NOTE
Augustin-Jean Moreau-Vauthier began his career as an ivorycarver but went on to study sculpture at the Ecole des Beaux-Artsfrom 1850 under Armand Toussaint. Highly successful Salon exhibitsfollowed and he was made a professor at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in1885. A number of his works were purchased by the State including aversion of his Fortune
.La Fortune is perhaps the most immediately recognisable ofMoreau-Vauthier's figures. Owing to its immense popularity it wascast in edition, and in various sizes. The model was firstexhibited in plaster at the Salon of 1878 and in bronze thefollowing year when it was purchased by the state. The Salon bronzeis now in the collection of the Musée de Rennes. A version inmarble was shown at the Exposition Universelle of 1889.The present cast is a rare version with the inclusion of a base inthe form of a globe supported by two winged putti. In the delicatesmall size the elegance and balance of the allegorical figure isparticularly remarkable. This fine cast has a warm, translucentpatina and a refined treatment of detail as the diaphanous layersof drapery billow across the body in graceful folds.RELATED LITERATUREBénézit, vol. 9, p. 831; Lami, vol. iii, pp. 484 - 488
