Barye sculpted many small models of Rabbits and Hares in the 1830s during the early part of his career when he was studying as a goldsmith. These small bronzes proved very popular and they were cast for many years. They are still sought after since they fit well in any collection.

The Rabbit crouched is a good example of this genre and shows a rabbit at rest on a rounded base with a beveled rim. It was cast around 1870. This bronze is not signed but it is a well known Barye model with a good rich brown patina.
