Jules Moigniez

Jules Moigniez (1835-1894) was a French sculptor whose primary subject was game birds, but he also sculpted dogs, horses, and some equestrian groups. He exhibited regularly at the annual Salons from 1859 until 1892, showing a total of thirty works.  He also exhibited in England at the London International Exhibition of 1862. Most of the artist’s bronzes were cast by his father, who was a metal glider by training. Together, they established their foundry in 1857 solely for the purpose of producing his bronzes.  Many of his bronzes were gilded, silver-plated, or had different and unusual patinas applied to them as both father and son were constantly experimenting with new finishes for their market.
