Almost life-size depiction of Venus with dolphin by Robert I Cauer (1831-1874). Full sculptural execution in marble. Inscription on the base "R. Cauer" as well as date 1874 and place name Roma.
Robert Cauer the Elder was born in Dresden in 1831 as the son of Emil Cauer the Elder. He belonged to the well-known Cauer family of artists and studied at the Düsseldorf Academy under Johann Gottfried Schadow and Karl Ferdinand Sohn. After a study visit to Rome 1856-1861 and journeys to England and Scotland he settled in Kreuznach an der Nahe. From the 1870s onwards he stayed in Rome again several times, where he will also have created this sculpture.
He was commissioned by the Prussian state to make plaster casts of Italian sculptures. His own works in this phase were mostly romantic motifs, which passed into private ownership. He died in Kassel in 1893. His sons Stanislaus and Friedrich Cauer continued the sculpture tradition of the family.

Delevery information :
The place of performance for all contractual claims is the Seller's place of business (Greding). This shall also apply if the seller sends the goods to another destination at the customer's request (sale by delivery to a place other than the place of performance). If the seller is also responsible for the assembly or installation of the goods at the customer's premises, the place of performance shall be the place of assembly or installation of the goods.
The costs of shipment shall be borne by the customer. The goods shall be shipped to the delivery address specified by the customer. The seller shall not be obliged to ship the goods abroad unless otherwise agreed.
If the customer trades as an entrepreneur and if, at the customer's request, the seller ships the goods to a destination other than the place of performance, the risk of accidental loss of the goods shall pass to the customer as soon as the seller has delivered the goods to the carrier or to the person or institution otherwise designated to carry out the shipment. The seller retains his claim to payment of the purchase price.
If the customer is acting as a consumer and if, at the customer's request, the seller ships the goods to a destination other than the place of performance, the risk of accidental loss of the goods shall only pass to the customer upon delivery of the goods to the carrier or the person or institution otherwise designated to carry out the shipment if the customer has commissioned the carrier, the freight forwarder or the person or institution otherwise designated to carry out the shipment to carry out the shipment and the seller has not previously named this person or institution to the customer. The seller retains his claim to payment of the purchase price.
If the delivery of the goods fails for reasons for which the customer is responsible, the customer shall bear the reasonable costs incurred by the seller as a result. This shall not apply with regard to the costs for the return shipment if the customer effectively exercises his right of revocation. In the event of effective exercise of the right of revocation by the customer, the provision made in the seller's revocation instructions shall apply to the return costs.
In the case of self-collection, the Seller shall first inform the customer that the goods ordered by him are ready for collection. The customer may then collect the goods from the seller's registered office by arrangement with the seller. In this case, no shipping costs will be charged.
