Stag Brought Down by Scottish Hounds (second version)


Description Exhibitions Provenance Inscription Credit
Description Two fierce hounds have seized a magnificent stag by the ear and throat. This sculpture is a variation on a work that Barye exhibited in the 1833 Paris Salon. In 1844, the firm of Besse et Cie issued a catalogue of Barye's sculptures in which the piece is described as follows: "Behold, in our opinion, one of Barye's most beautiful, arresting compositions, whose execution, even were it his only work, places him in the highest rank of artists."
