Biographie

Paul-Édouard Delabrierre, né à Paris, le 29 mars 1829 et décédé dans la même ville en 1912 est un sculpteur animalier français. Influencé par le maître Antoine Louis Barye, Delabrièrre est considéré comme l’un des artistes les plus importants de l’école animalière. Le Louvre accueille « L’Equitation », qui est un groupe de sculptures, peut être l’un des plus grands que Delabrièrre n’est jamais fait. Vers la fin de sa vie, il s’exerce à la fonte, alors que ses principales sculptures sont faites en bronze, plâtres ou pierre. Ses œuvres se négocient toujours sur le marché de l’Art à des cotes appréciées.

Biography
Paul Edouard Delabrierre, Paris born, was a member of the school of Animalier painters, active in the late 19th Century. He studied with was born in Paris, France on March 29th 1829. He was an important member of the Animalier school in late 19th century Paris, and the last two years of his career, introduced cast iron as a legitimate material for sculpture.Delabrierre studied art under the painter Eugene Delestre but found his interest and skills were with making three-dimensional sculpture. He was greatly influenced by Antoine Louis Barye and "many of Delabrierre's 'combat models' show this violence of nature, which was very popular at that time. Many of the sculptures he executed often incorporated figures as well as animals."Delabrierre first exhibited at the Paris Salon of 1848 and continued until 1882. His first entry was Terrier, a wax model holding a Hare. The facade of the Louvre has one of his largest groups, L'Equitation, made in 1857. "A complete list of the 70 works that Delabrierre submitted to the annual Salons can be found in the Dictionnaire de Sculpteurs de l'ecole Francaise by Stanaslas Lami."
