(SOLD) 19th Century Spanish Carved Dancing Elephants Pedestal by Emilio Benlliure

No Price

Rare example of a 19th century Spanish carved marble pedestal featuring three playfully standing elephants as the supports.  Signed E BENLLIURE – Emilio Benlliure Y Morales ( Valencia 1866 – 1930 ) The history of 19th century sculpture is full of artists specializing in the representation of sketches of anecdotal taste often populated by animals, too soon fallen into oblivion. One of these is definitely Emilio Benlliure Y Morales, belonging to the famous Valencian artists’ family, active between the second half of the 19th and the first half of the 20th century, able to achieve an international success.

Repair to one side of the base and a barely noticeable chip to one of the elephant’s trunks, neither of which takes away from the aesthetic impact of the piece.
