Comment

  • Institution's website, October 7, 2013:
    Fine terra cotta sketch of a group of three nude female figures made by Charles-Raphael Peyre in Paris sometime between 1895 and 1905. Standing figure is bent over forcing grapes into the mouth of the prostrate middle figure while a third figure is crouched under the middle figure holding her arm. Tambourine and grapes lie at the base. All figures have grape and leaf headdresses.
