Description

Dated from 1844, white marble statuary representing the mythological figure of Eurydice by Carl Holbeck. She is represented wearing a draped dress revealing her chest, her head leaning forward. At these feet, there is a snake, and she holds her ankle in her right hand.

This statue depicts the mythological figure of Eurydice from Ovid’s Metamorphosis. Eurydice, a trees nymph, is the wife of Orpheus, great poet and musician. One day, the shepherd Aristæus, son of Apollo, saw Eurydice busy picking flowers in a meadow and, attracted by her beauty, pursued her. In her flight, the nymph was bitten by a serpent and died. Orpheus, inconsolable, obtained from the monarchs of the subterranean world, Hades and Persephone, permission to descend to the Hells to recover the beloved. He obtained their consent on the condition that Morpheus didn’t return before he had left the Hell. Eurydice followed Morpheus by the sound of his lyre, but suspected of the promise of Hades, he turned, and immediately lost Eurydice forever. This statue shows the case when the nymph has been bitten by the snake.

The sculpture bears on the back the inscription : "C.F. HOLBECK FECIT ROMAE 1844". Carl Frederik Holbeck (1811-1880) is a danich sculptor who was the collaborator of Thorvaldsen. He is known for « Bacchus child » preserved in the Museum of Copenhagen.

Small losses in the feet.
