    I got this Mid 19th Century Bronze statue, L'Aurore (The Dawn) statue by Mathurin Moreau, signed in the mould. in about 1990 with a lot of luck and cash from a Canadian Auction.
    Usually this bronze is found in a height of 25 inches, It is rare in this height of 80.5 cm or 31.7 inches, and his patinas on his bronzes are impeccable. A lot of his work is marked Hors Concours, which means he was able to show his work without going through competition, he was that good !!

    Mathurin Moreau (18 of November,1822-14 of February, 1902) was trained by his father, came from a family of 3 brothers, all sculptors and he was the most famous, his brother August Moreau was also a sculptor and the most prolific. Most of his work that I have seen in person of August Moreau was done in Spelter. Most of Mathurin's work was done in Bronze. I have more info on his work as the wiki site has very limited info.

    Mathurin Moreau's bronzes are all quite grand and the bidding on this one was fierce, as his work is quite coveted. It weighs in at least at 100 lbs. as the marble base is solid marble. I put it in Figurines and is not really art deco but should have a category of Statuary which there is none, as the categories on this site are quite limited.

      Hello bijou, yes the same room. I have a second living room which was allotted to me and had the same dimensions as my living room now. Unfortunately I also have the last contents of my fathers in there and contrary to my sisters wishes I do not want to throw out stuff that my mom bought for sentimental reasons. Statues and furniture that is important to me in this room would be in the same room if I saw a living room big enough for all my furniture.

      I understand how you feel about not throwing out stuff your mum bought, things have emotional value, all of them. I'm sure they get along!
