Woman Feeding a Bird

Marble
Signed and dated “Jacques Pradier / 1820”

This tranquil marble sculpture is by Swiss-French Neoclassical sculptor Jean-Jacques Pradier. Created in 1820, this work depicts a lovely young woman feeding a friendly songbird that has landed on her arm. Whimsical and exquisitely executed, this pure white marble displays all of the grace and allure of Pradier’s very best marble creations. Beautifully proportioned, she evokes the classical Greco-Roman standards of beauty that experienced a revival during the 18th and 19th centuries in Western art.

Pradier, celebrated for his beautiful, sensuous depictions of the female form in the neoclassical style, was showered with professional honors and prestigious posts throughout his career. He was elected professor of sculpture at the Académie des Beaux-Arts in 1827, made Chevalier de la Légion d'Honneur in 1828, and Officier de la Légion d'Honneur in 1834. He sold more Salon entries to the French government between 1819 and 1852 than any other sculptor during that period, and his work was distributed throughout the national museums in France, including the Louvre.
