Overview

From bird , cat and horse to ape and camel, Animals in Bronze examines and illustrates the work of hundreds of sculptors and founders who have worked in this highly popular and much-collected field. The definitive animal bronzes, renowned for their vigour and authenticity, are those of Antoine-Louis Barye, and there is full coverage of his work here, along with that of others of his school. However, the scope of the book extends well beyond the confines of Les Animaliers to include the output of artists such as Troubetzkoy, Bugatti, Pompon, Haseltine, John Willis Good and Sir Joseph Edgar Boehm. Space is also devoted to several of today's practitioners.

In addition, the biographical index of artists gives page references to illustrated pieces, so that the work of particular sculptors can also be followed across different subject areas. Other
