Mid 19th Century Bronze Cast after a Model after A. BARYE


Price: Price on request


Nice bronze cast of a recumbent and roaring lion. His mighty head upraised  and looking to the right. The curling tail and one pawn is overleaping the rectangular base. This inscribed cast is after a model by Barye and probably executed by Ferdinand Barbedienne (1810-1892) who was the first posthumous editor of Antoine Louis Barye. (1796-1875)  With brown-black patination. On black marble base  (repaired).

F. Rionnet, Les Bronzes de Barbedienne (Paris, 2016), p514: 'Ferdinand Barbedienne est le premier éditeur posthume de Barye par le nombre d'oeuvres éditées'. See illustration plate LVIII.
