Of interest to both animal lovers and enthusiasts of bronze statues depicting the natural world - this is an interesting pair of bronze sculptures which bring to life the natural habits and feeding methods of these impressive, wild, grizzly bears where “what you catch is what you eat.”
Please take a close look at the photographs provided in order to appreciate not only the fine workmanship but also the lovely patinated gold colour that these pieces have acquired over the years - through being touched and admired by everyone who has had the pleasure of seeing them.
One of these bronze bears is shown in the process of catching a fish whilst the other has already made his catch and is holding it in his mouth. These finely crafted bronze grizzly bears are believed to date from the last quarter of the 20th century and are offered for sale in excellent condition.
Perhaps the most striking aspect of this pair of bronze wildlife statues is their lifelike appearance - due to the meticulous attention to detail and skill that the artist has lavished on them.
As previously stated, these bears are in excellent condition as we have tried to confirm with the very detailed gallery of photographs that we have supplied. There is, no better way of appreciating fine works of art like this than to actually see, feel and touch them in person which you are invited to do. See below to find out how.

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).

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.
