"The victorious gaulois" was presented in 1882 by André Paul Arthur Massoulle sculptor born in Epernay (1851/1901). This proud Gallic warrior crushing the Roman standard demonstrates the strength and patriotism embodying the French state of mind of this late nineteenth century. The proposed copy, produced around 1890, was published in bronze by the Thiébaut Frères Paris foundry (presence of the stamp). The nuanced brown patina with orange reflections is original, presence of wear in accordance with its age, deformation on a fin of the helmet and sword, but set of beautiful look. A slightly larger copy (76cm) of this Gaul is exhibited at the Museum of Fine Arts of Clermont-Ferrand, other works of this sculptor are present in museums, public gardens, the Genius with the trident and a Nereid adorn the Alexander III Bridge in Paris.
