Of interest to animal lovers and lovers of fine quality bronze animal statues is this fine pair of Large Bronze Stag Statuettes, which are made in the style of Moigniez.
Collectors of bronze animal statues take particular note. This is a handsome pair of bronze stags, bearing the replica signature of well known French sculptor Jules Moigniez, (28 May 1835 – 29 May 1894) and dating from the latter part of the 20th Century.
These bronze stags have been cast in bronze using the lost wax process. They re mounted onto lovely black marble bases. The animals have been captured forever in a scene in which they appear nervous, standing cautiously on a rocky outcrop, ready to take flight as the slightest sign of danger. We would recommend that you take a close look at the photographs provided in order to appreciate the level of attention to detail which has been put to work here and in particular the large and impressive antlers.
Ideally placed together, but they could be split if you wish, these bronze stag statuettes will add interest and style to any setting in which they are placed.
Jules Moigniez was a successful and highly sought after 19th century animal sculptor, renowned for the exquisite detail of his bronzes of many different types of animal including horses, birds, dogs as well as many farm animals. It was a true family affair with the majority of Moigniez's animal bronzes being cast by his father, who was a metal gilder.
This pair of bronze stags are offered for sale in excellent condition and we encourage you to see the accompanying photographs for confirmation.

Angelica Kauffman, RA (1741 - 1807)
was a Swiss-born Austrian Neoclassical painter who had a successful career in London and Rome. Though born as "Kauffmann", Kauffman is the preferred spelling of her name in English; it is the form she herself used most in signing her correspondence, documents and paintings.
While Kauffman produced many types of art, she identified herself primarily as a history painter, an unusual designation for a woman artist in the 18th century. History painting, was considered the most elite and lucrative category in academic painting during this time period. Under the direction of Sir Joshua Reynolds, the Royal Academy made a strong effort to promote history painting to a native audience who were more interested in commissioning and buying portraits and landscapes.
Despite the popularity that Kauffman enjoyed in British society and her success as an artist, she was disappointed by the relative apathy that the British had towards history painting. Ultimately she left Britain for the continent, where history painting was better established, held in higher esteem and patronized.
The works of Angelica Kauffman have retained their reputation. By 1911, rooms decorated with her work were still to be seen in various quarters. At Hampton Court was a portrait of the duchess of Brunswick; in the National Portrait Gallery, a self-portrait. There were other pictures by her at Paris, at Dresden, in the Hermitage at St Petersburg, in the Alte Pinakothek atMunich, in Kadriorg Palace, Tallinn (Estonia).
is a hard and durable wood with a satinlike sheen, much used in cabinetmaking, especially in marquetry. It comes from two tropical trees of the family Rutaceae (rue family). East Indian or Ceylon satinwood is the yellowish or dark-brown heartwood of Chloroxylon swietenia.
The lustrous, fine-grained, usually figured wood is used for furniture, cabinetwork, veneers, and backs of brushes. West Indian satinwood, sometimes called yellow wood, is considered superior. It is the golden yellow, lustrous, even-grained wood found in the Florida Keys and the West Indies.
It has long been valued for furniture. It is also used for musical instruments, veneers, and other purposes. Satinwood is classified in the division Magnoliophyta, class Magnoliopsida, order Sapindales, family Rutaceae.
