Paul Edouard Delabrierre - Sculpture

Description
Paul Edouard Delabrierre - Sculpture
France - 1890-1919 - Bronze, Marble

Large bronze sculpture with green patina depicting a couple of fawns walking side by side. One of the paws is marked "bronze."

The nuanced black and grey marble step terrace is signed by the animal artist/sculptor Paul-Edouard Delabrierre (hard to decipher!)

This French artist first studied painting with the painter Jean-Baptiste Delestre before turning to sculpture. He exhibited on a regular basis at the “Salon des Artistes Français” from 1848 to 1898 where he got an honourable mention in 1859.

An animal sculptor influenced by Antoine-Louis Barye, he almost exclusively makes groups or statuettes of animals.
