    Description

    Standing Henry Clay Bronze Figure 16" standing bronze figure of the "Great Compromiser," Henry Clay. Signed on the 6 1/2" x 6" base by Boyer (Emile Boyer, French sculptor). Clay stands in front of a draped column, surmounted by a scroll and book (representing, no doubt, the Constitution and the Laws). He stands as he did in the Senate, with one arm akimbo, foot thrust forward and one finger pointing, to highlight his argument. The details of his clothing and features are remarkable and of the highest quality. A fine work of art in excellent condition. Circa 1850-70.
