Reference: ZF0051

"L'amour mettant unites corde à son arc". "Lemire"; SAUVAGE, Charles-Gabriel (Lunéville, France, 1741-Paris, 1827).
Patinated bronze on rectangular base in ocher marble.
The present work shows, raised on a marble pedestal, a figure of a child Cupid putting a rope in his bow. Nicknamed "Lemire", Charles-Gabriel Sauvage was a French artist. Son of a founder, Lemire was part of the Niderviller porcelain factory, becoming artistic director of the same in 1781; in 1802, he moved to the Parisian factory of Dihl et Guérjard and, when Christophe Dihl passed away, the sales of materials and other elements of the manufacture dispersed the molds of the works of Lemire, giving rise to the production of bronze models of his sculptures . The marble model that the master made to present it to the Paris Salon of 1814 is currently preserved in the Musée Historique de Lorraine in Nancy (in the Louvre Museum in Paris).
