This magnificent sculpture is of a charging bull. With his head down, his nostrils' flared and his muscles tightened he stomps the ground before him, releasing a vibrating grunt, he smells the ground before him. All he see's now is red and he is raging angry, his horns are sharp and solid and he prepares to charge his nemesis and take him down. He is an extremely muscular and dense creature, thick rolls of muscle and fat around his neck for protection, he was made for these sorts of confrontations of physical strength. His tail curls up in a swift motion and off he goes, frozen in his pose and replicated in a true masterpiece of bronze artwork. Handmade of 100% bronze and resting on a solid black marble base this sculpture has a two tone brown patina and is cast using the ancient "Lost Wax Method". Signed J. Moigniez.

Jules Moigniez was born in Senlis sur L'Oise, France in 1835 and died in Saint-Martin-du-Teire, France on May 29, 1894.  The son of a metal gilder, Moigniez was a student of Paul Comolera.  He debuted at the Exposition Universelle in 1855 with Pointer and Pheasant and Falcon and Weasel each in plaster.  He contributed regularly to the Paris Salon from 1859 to 1892 during which he exhibited over thirty sculptures including Pointer and Pheasant and Falcon and Weasel in bronze. He was awarded an honorable mention at the Salon and received a medal in London at the Great Exposition in 1862. He lived most of his life in Paris. During his career he was widely popular in France, England and America. His bronzes were most decorative, particularly those of game birds.  He also sculpted dogs, farm animals and equestrian groups. Moigniez's dogs reflected the "naturalism" style of Pierre Jules Mene.  His bird sculptures were reminiscent of paintings by deHondecoeter, Casteels and Snyders. His sculptures of birds reflect dynamic movement, as if captured through a high-speed photographic portrait.      Moigniez bronzes were edited, (cast), by the foundry his father opened in 1857. A wide variety of patinations, including silver plate, golden bronze and gilding were unique to these lifetime casts.
