    A beautiful depiction of Venus disarming Cupid.  Her hand gently holds cupid close while he playfully stands on a vase reaching for his arrows.  Both faces are elegant, handsome and nicely detailed. 

    Based on the original by Albert-Ernest Carrier-Belleuse, born in France (1824 -1887).
     
    Carrier-Belleuse was a student of David d’Angers and studied briefly at the École des Beaux-Arts.  His career is distinguished by his versatility and his work outside France: in England between 1850 and 1855 (working for Mintons), and in Brussels around 1871. Carrier-Belleuse’s name is perhaps best known because Auguste Rodin worked as his assistant between 1864 and 1870. The two traveled to Brussels in 1871, and by some accounts Rodin assisted Carrier-Belleuse’s architectural sculpture for the Brussels Stock Exchange.

    In 1862 Carrier-Belleuse was one of the founding members of the Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts, and was made an Officier of the Légion d\'honneur.

    Imported from England
