OVER LIFE SIZE CAST STONE VENUS

Description:
Life size statue of the Venus Genitrix, by the Brussels firm Blaton-Aubert, which produced very high quality reconstructed stone garden ornaments in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Circa: 1885-1910

Founded in 1865, on the Rue du Blaton-Aubert was originally a construction firm specializing in architectural cast stone as well as a wide range of sculptures, fountains, urns, planters and other ornaments for parks and gardens, including a number of decorations for the Brussels Botanical Garden in the 1880’s. At the close of the 19th century as the use of reinforced concrete in construction began to spread, the firm’s focus shifted to large construction projects.

The original of the Venus Genitrix, now in the Louvre, was discovered near Naples in 1520, and was itself a Roman copy of a Greek bronze created in the fifth century, and was part of Louis XIV’s collection at Versailles.
