Satyr Mask
Previous 1 of 2 Next
This relief mask of a satyr, a woodland creature from Greek mythology with a fondness for unrestrained revelry, has been reproduced from the base of a bronze standard lamp in the Great Hall of The Breakers, Newport, Rhode Island. Executed in 1895 for Cornelius Vanderbilt, II, by the New York firm of Archer, Pancoast & Company, the lamp was itself copied from an Italian Baroque torchere. The expressive satyr mask, flanked with grape clusters, is a fine example of late 19th century metalwork. Yellow Bronze. American, 1895. 12.25 x 10 x 5 inches
