Art Deco Bronze Of The Sacred Heart By Maria Caullet Nantard, 6.25 by 4.75 Inches Circa 1925 Solid Bronze With Inset Wall Mount Ring

Maria Caullet Nantard was born in Lyon in France in 1876 and first exhibited at the Exhibition of French Artists in Paris in 1907 and obtained a gold medal that year. A brilliant sculptor and painter she went on to exhibit many times between 1931 and 1939.

Pieces by her command very high prices and a small statue recently sold at auction for €299.

This wonderful Sacred Heart Cross is exceptional. Nantard worked in several mediums as she was both a painter and sculptor.

The French are very proud of their artistic heritage and the government has catalogued every piece that they consider of great artistic merit on their heritage site. Maria Caullet Nantard has several mentions in that catalogue.

It is described as Ex-Voto as I am informed by the seller that it used to hang in a church near Boulogne sur Gesse which was destroyed.

This beautiful cross has a bronze ring inset to the rear for hanging on a wall and it measures 6.25 by 4.74 inches and weighs 650g so it is a substantial piece.
