Rembrandt Bugatti | Italian, 1884-1916
A unique, fine quality, early twentieth century bronze sculpture of a ‘Tiger Toying with a Snake’ by Rembrandt Bugatti (Italian, 1884-1916). This bronze was cast by the lost wax process at the Claude Valsuani Foundry in Paris. Before casting it was inscribed in the wax with a dedication by the artist’s brother ‘Derniere oeuvre de mon frere, Ettore Bugatti, Paris 8 janvier 1916’ and also stamped in the wax by the foundry ‘C. Valsuani Cire Perdue’. It is a unique piece and has a reddy brown patina with green undertones.
