Isidore Bonheur's best works were of Bulls and this bronze is no exception. It depicts a Bull standing alertly, and shows the muscles and structure of the animal very well. This Bull could be a Spanish Fighting Bull since it is leaner than most of Bonheur's other Bull sculptures. This model was also cast in a larger size. This proud Bull was cast by Peyrol and has their foundry stamp on the base. The Bull is finished in a light brown patina and shows excellent detail.
