SIGNED FRENCH ART DECO FIGURAL GROUP BY IRENEE ROCHARD C1930
Large & Impressive Antique French Art Deco Bronzed Spelter Figural Group depicting greyhounds in chase of a gazelle & signed by the esteemed French Sculpturer Irenee Rochard famed for his prolific work in animal sculptures in metals and bronze.

We came across this wonderful original piece whilst driving through a small village in France recently and dating from around 1930 depicts two greyhounds jumping a fence towards the sprinting gazelle and is set on a marble base with onyx insets. In extremely good condition with no chips or cracks to the base and with original patination to the greyhounds with some very slight age markings which is to be expected. There is no mistaking the beauty of the form of this wonderful piece and the merit of the Artist that created it.

mEASURES: 26" LONG X 10.5" HIGH X 5.5" DEEP

THE WATER BABIES OIL ON CANVAS BY ARTHUR KYNASTON D:1909
The Water Babies oil on canvas signed and dated 1909 by the Artist Arthur Kynaston ( 1876-1919). The inspiration for this lovely study may have been taken from the popular childrens book written by Charles Kingsley in 1863 entitled ' The Water Babies'.

In New Romantic Style and depicting groups of water babies in lovely soft mellow ochres. A charming study that has been reframed sometime in the 1970's into a plain brass frame. However we feel that this should now be rehoused into a frame more in keeping with its age and style and therefore enhancing the beauty and nature of this lovely painting.

Measures: 14.5" x 18.5"
