Bronze sculpture by Pierre Jules Mene

Bronze sculpture by Pierre Jules Mene
Circa 1865
A 19th century bronze sculpture of two horses entitled The Embrace, by Pierre Jules Mene (1810 - 1879).

This group, Arab Mare and Stallion, Groupe Chevaux Arabes (L'Accolade), was one of Mene's finest and most successful sculptures. It was exhibited in wax at the Salon of 1852, in bronze in 1853, and at the Exposition Universelle of 1855. Showing the individual characteristics superbly, the spirited stallion and the very typical 'tetchy' mare, the composition of this group is exceptional.

Signed and dated 1865
