Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Inscription Credit
Description Dogs, except in hunts, are relatively scarce in Barye's production. In the 1840s, however, he briefly modeled some statuettes of greyhounds and basset hounds. In this example, he exploits the graceful shape of the hound's lean body.
