Footnotes

  • John Willis Good was talented English animalier sculptor who can be compared to the French masters of the animalier school. During his short but prolific career he mainly concentrated on studies of hunting scenes, dogs and racehorses producing them in bronze and terracotta. He exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1870 to 1878 and Elkington & Co cast many of his pieces.

    The present bronze has the unusual stamp HAKOUSKI which probably refers to the sculptor Josef Natecz Hakowski (1834-1897) who knew and reputedly worked with Willis-Good. Hakowski is listed in Dictionnaire critique et documentaire des Peintres, Sculpteurs Dessinateurs et Graveurs E. Bénézit, Libraire Grund, 1966.

    This model is illustrated on page 209 in 'Les Animaliers' Reference and Price Guide, J. Horswell, Antique Collectors Club, Suffolk, 1971.
