He devoted his entire prolific career to animal sculpture. Born in Paris on March 29, 1829, he died there in 1912. He studied painting under Delestre but at a very early stage in his career he concentrated on animal sculpture and made his debut at the Salon of 1848 with Terrier holding a Hare and Wounded Deer. Delabrierre exhibited regularly at the Salon until 1882 and covered a wide range of animal studies, from racehorses and hunting dogs to game birds and exotic zoological specimens. His lions, tigers, antelopes, camels and bears were imbued with a spirit of realism and characterization, which was outstanding in the Animalier school. The theme of a Lion attacking a Crocodile was a popular subject and most artists of this time produced several in their careers. This is a good example of Delabrierre`s work and is viewable from any angle. It is finished in a rich red brown patina.

I ordered this Bull for my brother and it is a beauty! It is heavy and has great details!
The statue arrived with broken rod, cracked marble base. And broken rope. I was able to glue the rod and the rope. I disputed the charge with my credit card until the problem with the cracked base is resolved. Mr. Yan asserted tha he will ship a new base. So far I have not received any update. I’m not a happy customer because the statue had been damaged before it was shipped.
Staff was very helpful in my final decision. Even printed out instructions for delivery people on the box . Speedy shipping in bomb proof box . Descending the Night is magical.
Arrived quickly and extremely well pkged. SHE IS STUNNING!
I have both pieces and they are excellent quality. I’m very pleased with them.

We love our sculpture. This is our second erotic piece.
Beautiful Bronze statue. Makes a great addition to my other Bronzhous Bronz collection!
Isn’t this St Jerome? The lion gives it away.
The statue looks even more vital in person. The figures seem alive in their duel as you see and even feel their movement.
Really well done ,thank you Bronzhaus
This bust occupies the central position on a shelf of Imperial German items: A pressed felt pickelhaube to one side and a M1916 Stahlhelm to the other. Frederick perfectly compliments both items. A very nicely done rendering.
Bronze and delivery perfect
Beautiful statue, excellent detail, everything I had hoped for and far price.
