Bronzes

(4 items)

Bronze sculpture has been part of humankind’s attempt to create artistic images of the world around it. This art form had a very turbulent history as it was nearly forgotten and then “rediscovered” on two occasions, once during the Renaissance period and then during the Industrial Revolution in the mid-19th century. Typically, bronze is 88% copper and 12% tin. However, historically speaking, bronzes were highly variable in composition, as most metalworkers probably used whatever scrap they could get their hands on. This commonly lead to varying mixtures that saw bronze get combined with materials such as copper, zinc, tin, lead, nickel, iron, antimony, etc. Antique bronze statue, antiques bronze sculpter
