Diana the Huntress – SC006

Bronze figure of Diana the Huntress, after Houdon

The circular base inscribed F. BARBEDIENNE Fondeur and HOUDON

The slender Diana, balanced on tiptoes, seems to have been frozen in full motion. Her clean-limbed, firm figure, the way she nobly holds her head, her elegant movements, and her beauty were admired. Yet her nudity, considered improper for hunting, scandalized Houdon’s contemporaries.

Jean-Antoine HOUDON    (Versailles, 1741 – Paris, 1828)

Circa 1860
