now the historical moment;
Illegitimate daughter Montagu fell in love with Eleanor, who was also known as Thorn, in 1902 when she worked for him on The Car Illustrated, his motoring magazine.
Their long affair held another secret. The lovers had an illegitimate daughter, Joan, who was given away for adoption. Tragically Eleanor never saw the global success of the figurine.
On December 30, 1915, the liner was the first passenger ship to be torpedoed without warning during War. Montagu survived thanks to his bespoke life jacket, Eleanor went down with the ship, her body was never found… Well this piece was made for the auto show in Paris but WW2 start and the show was canceled.
Bronze was starting to be rare and most of the piece was melt to make arms and other. we find the sculpture without base and in really bad shape “she was sleeping for over 63 years. Discover by “mistake” when making major update in is new home as farm before. The owners of the farm decide to get “her” an repair at my foundries in France *(bronze casting) the cost to repair was way too much for him. In addition to difficult for a regular man, to repair the sculpture you need talent, and practice .My friend was a professional and buy the piece with the idea to fixed when he will have time ,,,, 20 years later he never have time to start… I see the piece “ASLEEP “in his basement.
