Antoine-Louis Barye's crocodile

ZF005952

New product

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.

Breaking away from the long tradition of Western sculpture, which most often saw the animal as merely an accessory, a decorative motif or at best a form of allegory, Barye became interested in the animals themselves, carefully studying their anatomy, seeking to grasp them, both in their movements and in their attitudes of rest.

Barye escapes the servitude of studying animal anatomy and treats his models with a great simplification of means and independence from tradition.

It was Barye's willingness to sculpturally treat the animal for its own dramatic value that earned him violent criticism.
