Footnotes

  • L'Accolade is one of Mêne's more celebrated works and depicts a courting Arab mare and stallion. It was first exhibited as a red wax sculpture with a thin black patina at the Salon of 1852, entitled Tachiani and Nedjebe. Mênes first bronze version was exhibited at the Exposition Universelle in 1855, where it won a medal. L'Accolade was cast in three different sizes.
