Bronze boy fishing by artist Bayre, Antoine Louis Bayre (1796-1875) was acclaimed by most as the finest sculptor of the French Animaliers school. His work is almost exclusively studies of wild animals but he also produced equestion groups as well as mythological figures. His animal sculptures are usually of violent nature especially his works of the big cats. Bayre was an accomplished artist as well as sculptor and his models are technically competent and based on his studies of actual wild animals, both living and dead, at the Jardin de Plantes, in Paris where he spent much of his time.dimensions are about 69x30x19
