'Bathsheba' – A Fine Gilt Bronze Figural Sculpture By Jean-Léon Gérôme. Cast by the Siot-Decauville Foundry, Paris.

The figure of Bathsheba was modelled by Gérôme in 1896. The sculpture depicts the Biblical figure of Bathsheba at her Bath and relates closely to the artist's 1889 painting of the same title.

Gerome sculpted this figure as a life-size plaster version which is now lost, known only from photographs. A polychrome plaster version (73cm in height) now in a private French collection, and an edition in gilt-bronze cast by the Siot-Decauville, of which the present figure is an example. A gilt-bronze version also cast by Siot, is in the collection of the Cummer Art Gallery, Jacksonville, Florida, USA.

French, Circa 1896.
G.M.Ackerman, "The life and work of Jean-Leon-Gerome, Paris 1986".
