Alabaster statue: “Vénus à la Pomme”


An antique, French alabaster statue dating from the late 19th to early 20th century, depicting a nude Venus holding an apple. Venus (or Aphrodite), goddess of love and of its pleasures, is one of the most famous of all deities. Simple, yet striking, the young lady exudes a carefree air, with her hair tied up in an alluring fashion as she rests on an adjacent post draped with cloth. The statue is 58cm high, and is raised on a stepped, onyx plinth.The figurine is modelled on an original by Bertel Thorvaldsen (1770 -1844), which currently resides at the Musée du Louvre in Paris.
