Artist: P.J. Mene

A 19th century bronze model of a whippet; 'Gisella', by P.J. Mene. To echo Christopher Payne, author of 'Animals In Bronze' …'full of charming anticipation.' 

Pierre-Jules Mene was born and died in Paris, 1810-1871. The most successful and prolific animalier of his day. In 1838 he made his first submission to the Salon, 'Dog & Fox', and established his own foundry. He entered at least one model to the Salon every year thereafter; entries being accepted in his behalf until 1879, eight years after his death. 

This fine small model with a deep and lustrous brown patina, dating between 1850-1875. 

6 in x 3.75 in x 4 inches high
