Albert Dominique ROZE (1861-1952) 'Golden Virgin of the Basilica of Albert'. Gilt bronze print of a virgin standing on a sphere, holding the child Jesus in her arms, a replica of the monument adorning the top of the bell tower of the Balique d'Albert. Signed 'Alb-T ROZE', mention of the founder Barbedienne 'F. Barbedienne Fondeur', and numbering of the print '14ème épreuve'. Mounted on a round base of veined green marble. France, early 20th century period, circa 1920. Dimensions: Height 84 cm (including marble base) x Width 20 cm x Depth 25 cm / Dimensions from marble base: Height 5 cm x Diameter 18 cm Very good condition of bronze. Note: Albert ROZE is the sculptor with the highest number of public commissions in France. From 1915, the Basilica of Notre-Dame-De-Brebières (called the Basilica of Albert) was bombed by the Germans. Despite the partial destruction of the building, Albert’s Virgin remained in place until last moments. Barbedienne established a publishing contract with the sculptor on September 1, 1915. Thousands of proofs were published by the founder Barbedienne in small dimensions, but this large and spectacular proof seems to have been published in very few copies, as emphasized by the numbering engraved on the base, which is unusual at the time.
