The son of the famous French 19th century sculptor Didier Debut. Marcel studied under Henri Chapu at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris. He exhibited at the Paris Salon from 1883 until the outbreak of the First World War.  Though he is best known for his sculptures of people this model of a Borzoi or Deerhound is one of his better known works.  Allthough this sculpture was modeled during the romantic period it shows the style of the impressionistic form of art.  The dog is more like those done by Rembrandt Bugatti who sculpted his animals a decade later. This large impressive bronze is finished in a rich dark green, black, and brown patina.  It is pictured in the book Les Animaliers by Jane Horswell on pg.  291
