Bronze bird attributed to Pautrot
Gilt bronze bird with wings outstretched and a worm or a snake in its beak. Attributed to Pautrot (unsigned).
Ferdinand Pautrot (1832 – 1874) was born in Poitiers, France.Very little is known about this competent French sculptor. His first recorded exhibit was at the Salon in Paris in 1861 with three entries. He continued to exhibit at the Salon until 1870.Most of his subjects were sculptures of hunting dogs, birds, wild animals, and horses. His sculptures are very detailed and naturalistic and look as if they are in a state of movement rather than being posed artificially.
Small chip to marble base.
