An Art Nouveau patinated bronze sculpture titled "La Faneuse" (The Haymaker) by noted French sculptor Alfred Boucher (1850-1934). Beautifully modelled, in a classic contrapposto pose, the young peasant woman rests from her task in the field, leaning on her pitchfork with one hand on her hip. Signed A. Boucher and with the name of the foundry: Siot, Paris. Circa 1900-1910. 7.25" x 7.25" x 22.5"H. Weight: 24 lbs.

Boucher was the son of a farmhand and championed the heroic nobility of the worker. He won the Grand Prix de Salon in 1881 and was a friend and colleague of Auguste Rodin. He was made a Chevalier of the Legion of Honour in 1887 and won a Grand Prix at the Exposition Universelle of 1900.
