Artist Description

Antoine-Louis Barye (French, 1795-1875)

Antoine-Louis Barye is considered the father of the French animalier school that became popular in the middle of the nineteenth century. The animalier movement was notable for its realistic and naturalistic portrayal of animals. Barye addressed themes such as wild animals in dramatic action pitted against each other in the struggle for survival. He was also instrumental in foundry practices, and placed a great deal of energy and passion into the fabrication of his bronzes. Barye was extremely influential to generations of European and American sculptors. He received many commissions, and executed public works and monuments around France. Until the 1990s, he was believed to have been born in 1796 rather than 1795, a correction discovered with scholar Martin Sonnabend’s reinterpretation of the Revolutionary Calendar. Barye’s works are represented in the great museums throughout the world, with large collections in American institutions such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, N.Y.; the Brooklyn Museum; the Walters Art Museum, Baltimore; the Baltimore Museum of Art; and the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington D.C.
