George Coudray (French, 1863-1932) was a sculptor who worked in terracotta as well as bronze. This particular sculpture was created by the artist for the 1900 World's Fair held in Paris, France, making this an especially wonderful acquisition. His highest reported auction price was $66,000.00; realized for a sculpture "Othello" sold at Christie's New York "19th Century European Art & Orientalist Art" in 2007. For those collectors who not only want excellence but also unique pieces that have a history.
