"Vainqueur du Derby" Bronze by Pierre-Jules Mene (1810-1879)

Stately and handsomely crafted, this "Vainqueur du Derby" a.k.a "Winner of the Derby" horse and jockey bronze is the creation of Frenchman Pierre-Jules Mene (1810-1879), considered one of the pioneers of animal sculpture in the 19th Century. Featuring a copper-brown patina and the signature "P.J. Mene," The piece was created in 1864 and measures roughly 10x10". There is a wood base included but not attached to the bronze. During his lifetime, Mene distinguished and in some respects distanced himself from the 'Father of the Animalier School,' Antoine-Louis Barye by capturing the more delicate side of the animal world and eliminating the natural violence in animals that Barye captured so well.
