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.

Lost Wax Method - sometimes called by the French name of cire perdue or the Latin, cera perduta is the process by which a bronze or brass is cast from an artist's sculpture.

In industrial uses, the modern process is called investment casting. An ancient practice, the process today varies from foundry to foundry, but the steps which are usually used in casting small bronze sculptures in a modern bronze foundry are generally quite standardised.

Jules Moigniez (1835 - 1894) - was born in Senlis, France. His most plentiful subjects were game birds, but he sculptured dogs, horses, and a few equestrian groups. Moigniez's first recorded exhibit was in Paris at the Exposition Universalle of 1855 where he exhibited a plaster titled Pointer stopping at the Pheasant. he exhibited regularly at the annual salons from 1859 until 1892 showing  total of thirty works. He also exhibited in London at the London International Exhibition in 1862.

Most of Moigniez's bronzes were cast by his farther, who was a metal gilder by training. Their foundry was established in 1857 solely for the purpose of producing Moigniez's bronzes. Many of Moigniez's bronzes were gilded, silver-plated, or had very different or unusual patinas applied to them as Moigniezs were constantly experimenting with new finishes.

In 1869 Jules Moigniez became ill and never recovered. He produced no new models from that date and in 1894 took his own life. Moigniez's father kept casting his son's works after his tragic death until he was alive. 

Today Moigniez's bronzes are very collectable and can reach thousands of pounds at auctions.
