Jules Moigniez won a medal at the Great London Exhibition of 1862. Modeled with precision, his dark to mid-brown patination and intricate surface detail represents a premier French Animalier composition in bronze.
Jules Moigniez (28 May 1835 – 29 May 1894) was a French animalier sculptor who worked during the 19th century. His output was primarily cast in bronze and he frequently exhibited his sculptures at the Paris Salon. He was best known for his bronzes depicting birds, although his skill and versatility enabled him to produce quality horse sculptures (primarily racehorses), dog sculptures and hunting scenes. His bird sculptures were among the finest ever created in his time.
