    Christophe Fratin (1801 - 1864)

    Christophe Fratin is a French sculptor and one of the first to practice the animal style, a trend in the mid-nineteenth century of portraits of animals in a romantic and naturalist style, which is found in the fields of sculpture and painting.
    His statue "Two Eagles Guarding Their Prey" (1850), shows the animals in dynamic poses and has been displayed in Central Park since 1863, making it the oldest and most famous sculpture in any New York park.

    Born on January 1, 1801 in Metz, France, Fratin was the son of a taxidermist, who taught him animal anatomy.
    He then moved to Paris and studied drawing and sculpture in the studio of the romantic painter Théodore Géricault.
    Today, Fratin's sculptures can be found in the permanent collections of the Louvre and in museums in Metz, Lyon, Strasbourg and Nîmes.
    Christophe Fratin died on August 17, 1864 in Le Raincy and was buried in the cemetery of Montmartre.
