Finely patinated bronze c1870 by Christophe Fratin
Christophe Fratin was born in 1801 in Metz, dying in 1864 in Le Raincy. He was a sculptor of animals and equestrian groups. His early studies were with Pioche, and later was a pupil of the far sighted and adventurous painter and sculptor, Géricault. He exhibited at the Paris Salon from 1831 to 1863. Comparitively little is known about this fascinating and highly competent sculptor of the ‘animalier’ school. His work was highly popular in many European countries and in Britain and the USA. Jane Horswell in ‘Les Animaliers’ records him as being accorded ‘the greatest animal sculptor of his day’ at the Great Exhibition of London in 1851.
His work is illustrated in Animals in Bronze, Payne (plate 1).
His work is represented in the collections of the museums at Metz, Châlons-en-Champagne, Compiègne, the Wallace Collection, London, the Peabody Institute Baltimore & the Eisler Collection, Vienna.
