Description This sculpture, which is unusually large for Barye's youthful productions, shows a weary stag gasping for breath. In 1829, a firm founded by Nicolas Susse and André Schrantz, later known as Susse Frères, acquired exclusive rights to market four of Barye's deer sculptures, including this piece.
