Appealing to art connoisseurs and animal lovers alike, this collection of 46 small bronze sculptures from the 19th and 20th centuries encompasses all manifestations of the animalier movement. The exhibition moves from the romantic wild beasts of the inventor of the genre, Antoine-Louis Barye, to the horses and domestic animals that were favored by some of his most important followers, Jules Mêne and Rosa Bonheur. It also includes important examples of animal art by 20th-century American artists Herbert Haseltine and Charles Russell, as well as by emerging contemporary artists.
This exhibition comes to the Arkell from The Georgia Museum of Art.
