Georges-Lucien Guyot is considered as one of the great animal sculptors of the early 20th century. He freed himself from François Pompon's influence and created his own personal work. In the 1930s, Pompon's success attracted numerous young followers, who indulged in copying his style. Yet Pompon admired Guyot's independence: 'I am interested in only one artist, Guyot. Because at least, he doesn't do Pompon.' This praise was consistent with critics' opinion, unanimous during Guyot's career. The present model exemplifies the sculptor's both naturalistic and elegantly stylised mode of animalier sculpture.
