A fine quality bronze figure of a handsome and alert male Pheasant walking on rough ground. Cast in bronze and lightly gilded with its one-piece base and signed to the front left.
Paul-Edouard Delabrierre (1829-1912) was a French animalier sculptor who worked in the mid-to-late 19th century and early 20th century. He had 70 of his works juried into the prestigious Salon Art Exhibition held annually in Paris. His monumental work entitled L’Equitation adorns the facade of the Louvre. Although his full name was Paul-Edouard Delabrierre, he almost always signed his sculptures as ‘E. Delabrierre’ in block or semi-block type letters. Occasionally he signed as simply ‘Delabrierre’ as in this case, and in the case of the two-humped Camel bronze he completed in 1849.
