Alfred Barye shows his mastery of bronze in this finely detailed sculpture of a strutting Pheasant.  With this model Barye shows that his abilities rival that of the great bird sculptors Comolera, Moigniez,  and Pautrot.  This wonderful model is finished in a brown and green multi-layered patina which is uniquely that of Antoine and Alfred Barye and was more than likely cast in his father's foundry during the final years of Antoine's life.  An example of this model is illustrated in Kjellberg's Bronzes of the 19th Century on pg. 54.
