    Pierre Lenordez (1815-1892)

    Pierre Le Nordez is considered one of the best specialists in equestrian sculpture of his time .

    He acquired a certain celebrity by producing sculptures , great winners of horse races , such as " Monarque " (Musée de Normandie in Caen) or " Gladiateur " (Château-Musée de Saumur) , or scenes with the horse as the main subject .
    He began to exhibit at the " Salon " in 1855 with a waxwork of " Baron ", a horse from the Imperial Stud in the Bois de Boulogne .
    He will exhibit there four more times until 1877 .

    He is the author of the horse of the equestrian sculpture of " Jeanne d'Arc " commissioned by his nephew , Albert Le Nordez , for Montebourg , his birthplace .
    Other monumental statues can be seen such as,  " The monument to Jehan de Grouchy " (Fonte) in a square in Harfleur (Seine-Maritime) or " Picker on horseback " (Fonte, 2.45 m) in the courtyard from Château Perrier in Épernay (Marne) .
    Pierre Le Nordez also distinguished himself in the history subjects that were very popular in his time .

    One of his most important works is " Le Capitaine d'Estouteville during the defense of Mont Saint-Michel " (Plaster, Avranches museum) .
    His knowledge of the horse encouraged him to write a work on hippology published in 1886 , " The Horse, its conformation and its breeding ".
    Back in Normandy , Pierre Le Nordez taught sculpture for ten years at the Municipal School of Fine Arts in Caen , training many students , the most famous of whom was Arthur Le Duc , who would reveal himself to his ride like a great equestrian carver .
