Footnotes

  • Conceived in the round, with the intention of being viewed from all angles, even above, ‘Deuxe jeunes lions’ was modelled with a naturalistic base by Barye early in his life, between 1832 and 1838. The model of the two playful lions became a precursor for ‘Chasse a l’elan’ and ‘Chasse a l’ours’, the similar compositions serving to emphasize the drama and violence of their respective subject matter. The turned base on this model suggests that Peyrol cast their edition from Barye’s later cast of the piece, which included the turned base as an addition to the original composition.
