Description
Doulour de Nausicaa Woman Mourning (1884). Bashkirtseff only started to sculpt when she was 24. "The sadness of Nausicaa" is the most famous of the five sculptures she completed. Nausicaa was the exemplary, beautiful king's daughter who Odysseus leaves in Homer's Odyssey because, after his long perambulations, he longs for Ithaca. 
  • Made from resin with a bronze finish. 
  • Measures 12.5 in H x 3.5 in W x 3.5 in D. Weighs 3.9 lbs. 
  • Part of the Parastone Museum Collection.
The Russian Maria Konstanovna Bashkirtseva, scion of a rich nobleman's family, travelled to Europe with her mother as a child. The talented and exceptionally ambitious young woman studied at the renowned Academie Julian in Paris, one of the few academies to admit female students. Bashkirtseff very quickly developed an extensive oeuvre characterized by a slightly academic, naturalistic style. In 1884, her painting 'Un Meeting' was exhibited at the Salon in Paris, but to her great indignation it won no prizes. At the time, she was already suffering from TB and wanted nothing more to be remembered as a great artist. She died in October of that same year, aged 25. Marie Bashkirtseff later primarily became known for her candid diary that she wrote starting when she was 13.
Feature: 12.5 in H x 3.5 in W x 3.5 in D
