Bronze Sculpture "Resting Bull" by Rosa Bonheur

About

The original model for "Boeuf Couché" by Rosa Bonheur was sculpted in 1846 as a study for her first major painting “Le Boeufs du Cantal” and was also executed in charcoal on paper the same year. Her brother-in-law Hippolyte Peyrol cast it for Rosa in his foundry and an identical example of this work of the exact same dimensions is held in the permanent collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. It is an exceedingly rare model and exquisite both in modeling and in casting, the chiseled and tooled surface perfectly capturing the recumbant bull with a degree of anatomical accuracy that is noteworthy. Notes: Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, acc no. 39.65.62 a/b, Peyrol stamped, 14.6 cm x 28.9 cm "Rosa Bonheur: Sa Vie, Son Oeuvre", Léon Rodger-Milés, Lyon, 1901: showing both the sculpture executed by Peyrol and original charcoal drawing of the same "Bronzes of the 19th Century", Pierre Kjellberg, p. 106-7 "Art Bronzes", Michael Forrest, p. 471 Rosa Bonheur Born in Bordeaux, France on March 16th, 1822, Marie-Rosalie Bonheur studied under her father, Raymond Bonheur, and with Cogniet. She first exhibited at the Salon in 1841 with a selection of paintings, exhibiting again in 1842 and bringing her first sculpture to debut in 1843. Over the next seven years, she produced roughly fifteen animalier models, many of these sculptures in terra cotta and plaster that were cast later in bronze. Among her numerous awards was a Salon Gold Medal in 1848, the LH in 1865 and the LHO 1893. After winning the Gold Medal at Salon for a painting, she began to focus more entirely on her paintings. Measurements: 11 3/8” W x 7 1/8” D x 5 3/4” H (28.9 cm x 18 cm x 14.6 cm)
