Lovely small marble sculptures mounted on pedestals representing girls squatting and allanguie. The taste is that of Louis XVI, it is believed to Falconet, Pin or Tassaert, but even more to Joseph-Charles Marin, the Cognac-Jay Museum has two identical marbles to our pair but larger (attributed to ). The first is a maenad, or next of Bacchus, surrounded by her attributes: tambourine, thyrsus, grapes grains. It is perhaps the fall. The second young woman holds roses and a sheaf of wheat. In her lap is a pruning knife. It is perhaps the summer. Some lacks. The head of the summer is reattached.
