Garden Statues: ‡ Louis Hottot: A rare zinc figure of 'The girl on the moon'

late 19th century

Louis Hottot (1829-1905) exhibited at the Salon from 1885. Much of his oeuvre concentrated on Eastern subjects such as Fille d’Egppte (1885) and Almee du Caire (1887) as well as the Negro Banjo Player, which was also cast in zinc. A similar group was reputedly made for the 1900 "Exposition Universelle" in Paris.
