Bronze group published at the end of the nineteenth century, representing a bacchante celebrating its god, after the original creation of the sculptor Carrier-Belleuse. This "dressed" version of the priestess follows the scandal caused during its first edition where the young woman appeared undressed. Beautiful general condition, original brown patina, presence of the signature on the base.

Appointed director of works of art at the Manufacture de Sèvres in 1875, Carrier-Belleuse participated in the birth of the Art-Nouveau movement.
