Bronze animal sculpture signed by French sculptor Moigniez
Jules Moignez was a French sculptor (1835 – 1894) born in Senlis, France. The son of a metal gilder, Moigniez is renowned for his exquisite animal bronzes, each sculpted with wonderful detail.
Moigniez’s first recorded exhibit was at the Paris Exposition Universelle of 1855 at the age of 20. He exhibited regularly at the annual salons from 1859 until 1892 showing a total of thirty works. Moigniez was a very successful sculptor in France as well as England and America. Most of Moigniez’s bronzes were cast by his father, who was a metal gilder by training. Their foundry was established in 1857 solely for the purpose of producing Moigniez’s bronzes.
