Late 19th Century French Academic artist Jean-Léon Gérôme was best known in his lifetime for his paintings, but he achieved excellence in his sculptural work too, as evidenced in this exquisite gilt bronze sculpture. The model depicts the moment of Caesar crossing the Rubicon on his horse, the moment which would start Rome's civil war. He is shown with his cloak over his head and with a look of avid determination on his face. The group is set on a rectangular naturalistic base.

The group is signed 'J.L Gerome' to the base. The casting was completed by the foundry of Ferdinand Barbedienne, and also features the signature 'F. Barbedienne, Fondeur Paris France'.
