Despite the sculptural piece's compact size, the care and precision taken in crafting each detail demand your utmost attention, leaving no room for anything but sheer admiration.

Recognizing the brilliance behind this beautiful creation, Louis-Auguste Moreau (1855-1919) was an eminent French sculptor renowned for his extensive mastery over interior plastics and genre sculpture. Born and bred in Paris, he carved a niche for himself with his exceptional creativity and skill. Starting his journey at a young age, his bronze sculptures gained fame since they were first exhibited at the renowned Salon in 1861.

Moreau consistently participated in these prestigious Salons until 1913, each exhibition bringing him immense success and recognition. His artistry in crafting exquisite figurines of cherubs, tiny children and angels has enjoyed worldwide appreciation and continues to have a devout following among the connoisseurs of intricate artistry.

Particularly popular during the latter half of the 19th century, his genre-themed sculptures were highly coveted for home decor purposes, bringing romance and aesthetic appeal into dwellings. Notably, his 'Angel Girl' and 'Cupid with a jug' masterpieces are paired figurines, although they are sold individually.
