About

This finely cast and iconic bronze by Antoine Louis Barye (1796-1875) demonstrates exacting proportions and musculature, the base bearing impressed signatures Barye and foundry marks F. Barbedienne, Fondeur (for Ferdinand Barbedienne), exhibiting a fine black/green patina overall. The underside bearing the numbers 2918 in script and incised numbers 44. Dimensions: 8.5" high x 17" long x 4" wide. Provenance provided at point of sale. Antoine Louis Barye is perhaps the most celebrated and acclaimed artist of the ‘Animaliers School’ and was the recipient of several royal & state commissions and the patronage of a great many noble French families. He was appointed Director of Casts and Models at the Louvre in 1848, and in 1858 he was made Professor of Drawings at the Museum of Natural History at the Jardin de Plantes. He was awarded the Grand Medal at the 1867 Exposition Universelle in Paris, and became the 1st President of the Central Union of Beaux Arts as well as being made a member of the Institute of France. After his death in 1875 the majority of his master casts and models were purchased by the famous foundry of Ferdinand Barbedienne (1810-1898) and these posthumous edition castings were executed with the highest attention to scale, definition and patina and bear the signatures Barye and F. Barbedienne, Fondeur (International clients are tax exempt on antiques when shipped from Canada). Ontario residents are subject to 13% HST on goods and services purchased.
