Jacques-Auguste Fauginet
1809 - 1847
FRENCH
CHASSEUR AFRICAIN COMBATTANT UNE LIONNE (AFRICAN HUNTER FIGHTING A LION)

Catalogue Note

Fauginet was at the forefront of Romantic sculpture. He presented groups of this subject in plaster and bronze at the Salon of 1836, around the same time that Barye designed his famous surtout-de-table for the Duc d'Orleans. The juxtaposition of man and animal in a tense moment is typical of the movement.
