Dressed in the hourglass and high-neck fashion of the Edwardian era and with one hand raised to her face along with a cheeky smile, this bronze figure embodies the essence of the Belle Epoque. The figure stands upon a plinth base that has an engraved monogram ‘FHF’ below and the maker’s mark of possibly ‘Vigo’ to the rear.
Probably French, circa 1900.

The Belle Epoque was a significant period in French history (1871-1914) icharacterised by optimism and relative peace and prosperity. As well as a period of great innovation and development in technology and science, it was a new age of light entertainments, with institutions like the Moulin Rouge and Folies Bergere becoming immensely popular, with the Burlesque style becoming mainstream. Retrospectively, this period was looked upon as the Golden Age, with Art Nouveau being the most popularly recognised art movement to emerge from it. This was a largely decorative style with curvilinear forms inspired by natural shapes and structures and which evolved as a reaction to the academic art of the 19th century.
