Sculpture speaks to us in a very special way and its innate physicality enriches our lives quite differently from any other art form.

Stuart Lochhead Sculpture offers the best in all media from antiquity to the 20th century. Whether created by a celebrated or a little-known artist, the sculptures we handle are of the highest quality.
With an intimate knowledge of the sculpture market and dedication to precise research we pursue the acquisition and sale of sculpture with three essential values in mind: Rarity, Integrity and Beauty.

Carpeaux

Jean-Baptiste Carpeaux (Valenciennes, 1827- Courbevoie, 1875)
Bacchantes aux Roses, circa 1872
The present sculpture testifies to Carpeaux’s technical prowess, and to his privileged relationship to marble, the artist’s favourite medium.

Southern Germany

1st half of the 18th century
Immaculate Virgin
This virtuoso, polychrome wood sculpture epitomises the Bavarian Rococo style with its varied use of colour, gilding and paint finish.

Etex

Antoine Etex (Paris, 1808 - Chaville, 1888)
Model for the tomb of Théodore Géricault (1791-1824), 1840
“For your honour, sirs, for the honour of our fellow painters, the artist of the painting Medusa must have his tomb”, declared Etex when he discovered the indignity of the painter’s burial. This bronze is a reduced version of Etex’s monument in the Père Lachaise Cemetery in Paris.

Giambologna

Florence, circa 1600
Cristo Vivo
A beautifully chased gilt bronze from the workshop of Antonio Susini.

Bourdelle

Antoine Bourdelle (1861-1929)
Vase with a naked woman, circa 1892
This beautiful and sculptural vase is an early work Bourdelle realised in collaboration with Alexandre Bigot, one of the most important ceramicists at the time.

Carrier-Belleuse

Albert-Ernest Carrier-Belleuse (Anizy-le-Château, 1824 – Sèvres, 1887)
Eugène Delacroix (Saint-Maurice, 1798 – Paris, 1863), 1864
At the 1865 Salon, the critic Gonzague Privat was pleased to discover "the portrait of Eugène Delacroix, beautiful bronze that was admired at the exhibition of works of the great painter [...] Mr. Carrier-Belleuse is, without any doubt, the most charming sculptor we have; his talent is varied like nature; he approaches everything and triumphs."

Lorta

Jean-François Lorta (Paris, 1752 - Versailles, 1837)
Sacrifice to Love & Sacrifice to Jupiter, 1790
Two delightful terracotta reliefs signed by a little-known but evidently very gifted French artist.

Marque

Albert Marque (Nanterre, 1872-1947)
Sleep
A style inspired by Carpeaux and Dalou and infused with Renaissance and classical art. Marque exhibited frequently at the Salons of Paris including the Salon de la Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts where this marble relief was exhibited in 1899.

Parodi

Filippo Parodi (Genoa, 1630-1702)
Christ at the Column, circa 1679
Parodi is widely regarded as Genoa’s foremost native baroque sculptor. His compositions defined the visual culture of the city and decorated the altars of prominent churches across late seventeenth-century Europe.

David d’Angers

David d’Angers (Angers, 1788 - Paris, 1856)
A portrait of Jean Racine (1639-1699), 1832
This special plaster bust romanticises the great French writer renowned for his mastery of French classical tragedy.
The works illustrated here are but a selection.
