Footnotes

  • The original cast of this model was commissioned for the Tuileries Gardens in 1846, it was then moved to the Quai-side at the Louvre in 1867. Barye first exhibited the piece at the Salon of 1847, and it was also listed in his first catalogue that year. A further example of this model is now in the Victoria and Albert Museum.
