ISIDORE BONHEUR (FRENCH, 1827-1901) BRONZE SCULPTURE OF STANDING RAM, Stamped “Peyrol” along edge of base, signed “I. Bonheur”

Item # 604LWP12Q

The ram sculptures executed by Isidore Bonheur were some of the finest works he completed. The present example, like the majority of Bonheur’s work, was cast by the foundry operated by his brother-in-law Hippolyte Peyrol, the edge of the base impressed with the very tiny stamp of “Peyrol”. The detail is above reproach, as is always the case with his work during this period. The ram’s face is scientifically perfect, a flawless representation of reality expressed in the legs, hooves and proportions; the thick and unruly wool is sculpted in a complex and highly effective manner. A gorgeous and complex patina of light brown with rubbed “gilded’ highlights, having traces of reddish-brown patina throughout the base, remains untouched and fully original. The finishing work is outstanding. This is a very fine acquisition for serious collectors of the Animaliers, a precious casting of a serene subject.

Measurements: 7 1/8” H x 8 3/16” W x 3 15/16” D

Condition Report: Very light patina wear from handling. Gorgeous overall condition.
