Antoine-Louis Barye (1795-1875 ) was a French sculptor most famous for his work as an animalier.Born in Paris, Barye began his career as a goldsmith, like many sculptors of the Romantic Period. After studying under sculptor Francois-Joseph Bosio and painter Baron Antoine-Jean Gros he was in 1818 admitted to the ecole des Beaux Arts. The mass of admirable work left by Barye entitles him to be regarded as one of the great animal life artists of the French school.   more from wikipedia »
