description

A Pair of Large and Finely Patinated Bronze Models Of A Standing Bull and a Running Cow After Models by Isidor-Jules Bonheur, Cast on a Naturalistic Base.

Signed 'I BONHEUR' and stamped 'PEYROL EDITEUR'.

Bonheur was a regular exhibitor at the Paris Salon and his naturalistic depiction of farm animals, including cattle, was one of his most popular subjects. The bronze was cast by his brother-in-law, Hippolyte Peyrol, who ran one of the most successful art foundries in Paris at this time.
