This wistful young lady is by the renowned French sculptor, Emmanuel Villanis (1858 – 1914). She is in a richly patinated bronze and bears his signature on her left shoulder. Typical of his work, the girl herself is finely and sensitively executed and presented upon an integral base modelled swiftly and with great energy in clay, having the title of the piece, “Mignon” on the front and at the side the legend “Salon 1896”.
