Lower right – E. Guillemin
French sculptor of the Belle Epoque, worked in bronze. He began his studies with his father Emil-Marie-Auguste Guillemin, then with the sculptor Jean-Jules Salmson (1823 – 1902), a representative of the academic direction of French plastic art. Since 1870, the sculptor’s works have been constantly exhibited at the Paris Salon. In 1870, two Roman gladiatorial bas-reliefs and bronze casts were acquired by the state for the Château de Saint-Germain-en-Laye. Emile-Coriolanus Guillemin has collaborated with major art editors such as Barbedienne or Christofle. Guillemin continued to exhibit at the Salon until the late 1890s, where he exhibited a series of bronze busts of Oriental women. These busts were part of the Orientalist movement and therefore a particular context. And Guillemin traveled to North Africa and the Mediterranean Basin to capture the anthropological characteristics of various local cultures, as Charles Cordier (1827-1905) had done a few years earlier.
Guillemin’s works are in private collections and in many museums.
The sculpture “Arabian hunter warrior on a camel and a dog”, the fruit of this journey and an excellent interior decoration and a good antique gift.
His works were sold several times at auctions. In the United States, one of his works, Janissaire du Sultan Mahmoud II, was sold for $ 311938 and Jeune fille du Caire at Christie’s auction in London in 2007. The artist died in 1907.
