This fine bronze of a Great Dane dog by Alfred Barye is a well detailed sculpture and is finished in a dark brown patina. The Great Dane was used to hunt wild boar and they are a powerful dog. This model is one of Alfred Barye's best works and shows his talent as a sculptor. The dog's muscles are well sculpted and he is on the alert. He stands proudly on a slanting oval base which Alfred used on many of his sculptures.
