Extraordinary sculpture in white Carrara marble with base. Representative female figure covering herself with a starry veil, symbol of the night. At the base there is a very pretty putto holding a bouquet of flowers.
This sinuous shape takes up the model of representation of the allegory of the night originally conceived by James Pradier.
Signed lower right P. Franchi (1817-1878)
