This charming antique patinated bronze figure is cast in the form of a winged and youthful figure of a girl reading a book with text by Virgil, and wearing a star adorned cap and diaphanous tunic, seated on a red marble column with ormolu capital; the text inside the book reading 'Le travail peut avoir pour objet des choses infimes, mais la gloire qui en est le fruit n'est pas petite', directly translating to 'The work can have tiny things as a focus, but the glory of which it results is not small'.
