Object Description

The Jaguar Qui Marche translates directly to Jaguar that walks is an infamous bronze by the renowned French sculptor Antoine-Louis Barye. It is exceptionally cast upon a double stepped plinth with a dark brown and mottled green patination throughout. Signed across the base Barye and numbered to the underside ’43’, the sculpture dates to the first half of the 19th century circa 1840. This figure was originally modelled by Antoine Louis Barye (1795-1875) as a pair to a Jaguar Standing. More than a decade later he modelled a slightly different pair, also of a jaguar walking paired with a jaguar standing but this time with their ears set back and on a rocky base. It is important to note that later models typically bear the Barbedienne foundry mark due to Barbedienne purchasing the original drawings when Barye died.
