Antique Art Nouveau Lady Bronzed Spelter Statue Bust by A. Description: Presented is a wonderful statue depicting a beautiful young woman. This statue was designed by Alfred Foretay 1861-? , a sculptor from Switzerland and an exemplar of the Art Nouveau movement who lived and worked in Paris. Foretay is best known for busts and full-figure romanticised depictions of young women with the flowing garb, elaborate hats and flowers characteristic of the genre. Foretay’s works, especially his most commercial and objet d’art pieces, were often derivative, especially of earlier works by more famous Nouveau sculptor Emmanuel Villanis. The statue is made of spelter – a special zinc alloy used in early 1900s to substitute bronze. It was used to create affordable art objects for those who could not afford expensive bronze.
