Object Description

The bronzes in this pair are after Guillaume Coustou’s 18th Century marbles, now in the Louvre but first commissioned by Louis XV for the Chateau de Marly, hence the name the horses commonly take: ‘Marly Horses’. Each sculpture depicts a wild, rearing horse and a man attempting to restrain his steed. Coustou’s marbles proved to be some of the most influential pieces of art created during the 18th Century, and until today works have been produced after these originals. Each of the bronze groups in this pair is beautifully patinated, being particularly fine examples of Marly Horses.
