This fall, Graham Shay 1857 presents

Small Bronzes From Two Distinguished Private Collections by

Antoine-Louis Barye (French, 1796 - 1875), along with works from the Gallery inventory, on view at 34 East 67th Street from

October 9th to November 8th. Barye’s widely popular sculpture

was instrumental in solidifying the European Animalier School of sculpture as one of refinement and raw beauty, a contribution

exemplified in this exhibition through various bronze casts by the

artist, considered to be one of the masters of 19th Century French sculpture.

Barye was uniquely gifted in capturing the emotion of the natural

world, apparent when viewing his Elan Surprised by a Lynx, which conveys the crude panic of the unsuspecting stag in tandem with the fierce determination of the Lynx. Likewise, the uninhibited spirit of a Senegalese elephant manifests itself in Barye’s

representation through weightlessness of the great beast, mid stride, floating above the terrain.

The artist was a master of romanticism and naturalism,

communicating the drama that was so present in classical sculpture through his own work. Predator and prey, the struggle for survival
