This auction consisted of select marbles, bronzes, ceramics and other art objects from the collection of Aleksandr Nelidov [1836-1910] aka Alexander Nelidow. With thanks to Wikipedia for the following: "Studied at St. Petersburg University. Entered diplomatic service in 1855. Secretary to the Russian embassies at Athens, Munich and Vienna. Councillor to the Russian embassy in Constantinople, 1872. Ambassador to Saxony, 1879. Ambassador to Italy, 1897-1903. Ambassador to France, 1903-1910." This sale at Galerie Georges Petit featured the so-called Alexander Nelidow bronze statuette [Lot 43], also known as Alexander with the Lance, a reference to Alexander the Great. This controversial piece, described in the past as an ancient Roman bronze, may more accurately be said to be a Renaissance statuette. Currently housed at the Fogg Art Museum.
