Bronze sculpture with brown patina "Nymph with poppies" signed Gustave OBIOLS. This statue represents a young woman walking with a walking stick in her left hand. Her head is topped with a crown of poppy flowers and leaves on a loose bun. Her bare chest is draped in a cloak held in place by an ornate belt and strap. She is wearing sandals. In her hand she holds a bouquet of poppy flowers. The terrace, treated like a rock, is decorated with leaves and signed G. Obiols. The bronze bears the EU mark and the founder's stamp "Médaille d'Or Paris". It is a sand casting. This work is influenced by the Art Nouveau movement which particularly likes the poppy motif and the sinuous lines as in the hair of this figure.

Gustave OBIOLS (1858-1910) was a Spanish sculptor who came to work in Paris at the end of the 19th century. He joined the studios of Albert-Ernest Carrier-Belleuse and regularly exhibited at the Salon from 1889. He was awarded a bronze medal at the 1900 Exposition Universelle.
