    “Retriever with Game”
    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.

    signed Rulas, by Max Le Verrier
    Max Le Verrier was born in Neuilly sur Seine, near Paris in 1891, dying in Paris in 1973. From an early age he showed great promise as an artist and sculptor, and after serving in the French army during World War I, he studied at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Geneva. During his studies in Switzerland, he met fellow sculptors Pierre Le Faguays and Marcel Bouraine, who became close friends and with whom he collaborated for much of his life. After completing his studies, he returned to France in 1919 and opened his own studio. Le Verrier was awarded a Gold Medal at the great Paris ‘Expostion des Arts Decoratifs’ of 1925 (whence the term ‘Art Deco’ was coined). In 1926, he opened a foundry, casting pieces for a wide range of French sculptors including Pierre Le Faguays, Marcel Bouraine, Janle, Denis and Charles.
    His work is illustrated in Art Deco Sculpture, Arwas
