“L’Aurore” by Alfred Finot
The white marble sculpture « L’Aurore » by the French sculptor Alfred Finot rests on a veined marble base signed «A. Finot». The anatomical elements of Alfred Finot’s demi-nude of a young woman getting up in the morning, her limbs, upper body, and her gently smiling face, have been rendered in fine detail, leaving the draperies enveloping her body and head undefined.
« L’Aurore » is reminiscent of Barrias’ famous figure « Nature Unveiling Herself to Science ». The style however, is closer to Art Nouveau as the soft curves of form and drapery seem to melt into one another in subtle undulations.
