Lecourtier was best known for his sculpture of the Chained Mastiff titled "Garde au Chien", but he also did other models of dogs. Here he shows a Hunting Dog as he looks for game, and the game bird is hiding by his feet.

Hunting Dogs of all types were very popular in the 19th century and were often depicted in artwork. The dog could be a Retriever, Setter, or Spaniel, or another breed, he is well modeled and the bronze captures the instant he scents the hidden bird.

A handsome model in a useful size for a desk or table, this bronze is a fine 19th century cast with a warm brown patina.
