Animalier Bronze Study Entitled 'L'Accolade' by Pierre Jules Mêne

About

A wonderful mid-19th century animalier bronze cast from the artist’s own workshop, this is a rare bronze study of an Arab Stallion and Mare. Originally entitled “Tachiani et Nedjibe, Arab horses” the composition captures the individual characteristics superbly, the spirited stallion and the typically ‘tetchy’ mare. An excellent example with wonderful rich brown patination and intricate surface detail. Raised on naturalistic base and signed P J Mêne. Made in three sizes this is the smallest size and highly sought after as a focal point for modern interiors. Pierre-Jules Mêne ~ French, 1810-1879 - was born in Paris, the son of a prosperous metal-turner. His father trained him in metal-working techniques and he quickly put them together with his own natural talent for drawing and began creating small sculptures. Mêne rapidly became one the most successful and popular animalier of his time. Examples of Mêne's work reside in venues around the world, including museums such as the Ashmolean, the Louvre, the Metropolitan, and the R.W. Norton Art Gallery.
