"From Barye to Bugatti - Les Animaliers", at The Museum Beelden aan Zee, The Hague, opens 18th February

From Barye to Bugatti - Les Animaliers is the first survey of animal sculptures from1830-1930 to be held in the Netherlands. Museum Beelden aan Zee has borrowed works from museums, galleries and private collections in Australia, Belgium, England, France, Netherlands and the USA.
The exhibition is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue. Contributions include essays from Dick van Broekhuizen, Karin van derKooy, Frans van Ryckevorsel, JanTeeuwisse, Paul Verbraeken, and Caroline Wynaendts.

Featured artists include:  Antoine-Louis Barye, Isidore-Jules Bonheur, Rosa Bonheur, Rembrandt Bugatti, Albéric Collin, Josuë Dupon, Christophe Fratin, Emmanuel Frémiet, Georges Gardet, Pierre-Jules Mêne, Jules Moigniez, and François Pompon.

This exhibition, featuring over 150 works in bronze, looks at the development of sculpture through the theme of animals. It starts with the romantic realism of Antoine-Louis Barye, continues with other more realistic nineteenth century sculptors such as Mene, Bonheur etc – with a special emphasis on the anthropomorphic Bears of Christophe Fratin. From the early twentieth century the impressionism of Bugatti and his Antwerp Zoo colleagues Collin and Dupon are well represented and it finishes with the semi-abstract modernist works of François Pompon.

An informative catalogue in which all exhibits are illustrated is available from the Sladmore Gallery priced at €25.
