This horse is in bronze with brown patina. While its craftsmanship may seem classic, its blowing mane gives a lovely volume to the work and a touch of modernity.
Jules Bonheur (1827-1901) is both a painter and animal sculptor. He first studied painting with his father, then at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts. Then opened up to sculpture, which he practiced at a very young age.
He participated in the Salons until 1899 and obtained a medal at that of 89. He was made Chevalier de Légion d'honneur in 1895.
He is the author, among others, of the stone lions that adorn the staircase of the Palais de Justice, Place Dauphine in Paris and the monument in memory of Rosa Bonheur in Fontainebleau.
