A stunning late 19th Century French bronze figure of a seductively draped female figure representing, in allegorical form, Nature revealing her secrets to Science, a fitting theme for the late nineteenth century. The interest in nature literally apparent in the work of the Barbizon school and the Impressionists is here portrayed in the symbolic manner favoured by Salon sculptors. The erotic overtones of the figure's pose and the richly varied colours of the bronze surface are characteristic of the opulent taste of the late nineteenth century, while the flowing linear patterns of the drapery and the curving outline of the figure suggest the forms of Art Nouveau. Raised on a shaped marble base, signed E Barrias and with Susse Freres foundry stamp.
