The style of Antoine-Louis Barye (1796-1875) remains unique and this form of romanticism will no longer be found in animal art.
Little appreciated by the official circles, Barye stopped exhibiting at the Salon after 1837. But rich amateurs, such as the Duke of Orleans, were interested in his art, so little academic, and the bronze edition of his small-sized works ensured its success with a large audience, despite many setbacks and setbacks.
Barye is rightly considered to be one of the most important sculptors of the 19th century and, above all, one of the greatest animal artists of all time.
