Sculptor - Ferdinand Pautrot
Title - Pointer with Birds
Sand Cast Bronze
6" height by 4 3/4" length
(15.2 cm by 12 cm)
Pautrot was an excellent sculptor of both game birds and hunting dogs. Here he captures a lighter moment with a Pointer sitting and watching the two birds at his feet. The dog is alert and keeping his attention on the birds while they flutter around in front of him.
A well sculpted and amusing small bronze which is a little different than the usual hunting theme of dogs with game birds. The Pointer has rather a surprised look on his face which adds to the interest of the piece.
This bronze has a rich dark brown patina and is mounted on the original beveled black slate base. A rare model that is not often offered for sale, it is a fine example of Pautrot's expertise in depicting dogs and birds.
