Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Inscription Credit
Description Although Barye preferred wild animals over farm animals as subjects, he created several sculptures of powerful bulls during the early 1840s. They may have been related to the half-man, half-bull monster in his famous neoclassical statue Theseus and the Minotaur of 1842.
