Product description

"The Sluggard - Art Nouveau Bronze Figure - signed F. Leighton"

Weight 3,1 kg

"The Sluggard" is a fancy nude Art Nouveau Sculpture originally made by the English artist Frederic Leighton and shows an athletic young male stretching his body. Leighton got inspired to create this bronze while one of his male models – Giuseppe Valona – stretched himself after he was sitting for a long while. The first model of this sculpture was made of gypsum in 1885 and was a life-size sculpture of "The Sluggard" that is nowadays exhibited at the London Tate Gallery. The exhibit shown here was made of 100% finest bronze and signed by its inventor Leighton. For the last perfect touch the detailed and filigree as well as very naturally looking sculpture was affixed on a solid squared base made of marble. 


As all of the bronze products in our shop, this exhibit is hand-cast in our own foundry and subject to our strict quality inspections throughout the entire process of fabrication. All of our sculptures are exclusively compounded with the help of lost-wax casting.

He was one of the famous representatives of the Victorian Neo-Classicism and created a lot idealized illustrations. His paintings were characterized by ancient and biblical scenes and by portrays of young woman and girls. Another preferred theme was the illustration of Spanish and Italian scenes of the life and the daily work of these two nationalities. On January 24, 1896 the artist Frederic Leighton was announced "Baron Leighton of Stretton" by Queen Victoria. Tragically the British sculptor Leighton died the next day because of a stroke.
