Pautrot's Bronze Sculpture of Two Birds, 1860
Ferdinand Pautrot was a French sculptor, 1832–1874 known for his realistic bronze sculptures associated with the Animalier period. Pautrot specialized in hunting themes. He was known for his love of animals, particularly birds,and his highly rendered, engaged and dramatic depiction of animals. He was one of France's foremost known Animalier artists, very active in the mid 19th Century, first successfully participating in the Paris Salon of 1861 and continuing to exhibit until 1870. This bronze sculpture has two birds fighting, the larger one dominating the other, set upon a rocky and naturalistic setting of fallen leaves. The details of the feathers are stunning and absolutely realistic in appearance. The claws of the birds and their expressions are also equally remarkable. The rocky ground is signed "F. Pautrot". The figure retains its original medium brown patina with light gilt touches. The piece is 10 inches high and the bases 4 by 7.5 inches. Makes a great decorative piece for an art or animal enthusiast.
