Engage in the artistic prowess of one of the greatest French animal sculptors of the 19th century, Emmanuel Fremier, as we introduce his stunning work of art, a meticulously crafted dog sculpture that perfectly captures a definitive moment of anticipation.

Measuring 38cm in length and weighing almost 10kg, this impressive figurine belies its relatively small size with the emotive implication of its design. It portrays the intense moment when dogs are eerily poised on the brink of action, all senses acutely focused on the awaiting signal to leap. The time, skill and substantial talent invested by E. Fremier are readily apparent at the first glance. Just observe how accurately the bodies of waiting dogs are stretched out, each muscle portrayed with precision to create a realistic image of expectation and readiness. This sculpture, a remarkable incarnation of the artist’s deft proficiency, serves as a testament to his dedication and commitment to his art.

Emmanuel Fremier (1824-1919) was the epitome of an animal sculptor who honed his skills in the traditions of naturalism and neoclassicism. His debut exhibition staged at the Paris Salon in 1845 paved the way for a flourishing career in art. In the course of his illustrious career, Fremier created innumerable exquisite bronze figurines, mainly depicting animals. His exceptional talent didn’t go unnoticed, rather he was duly recognized with a host of prizes and awards. This particular piece is indeed a rare masterpiece, embodying the artist's unique flair and charismatic influence.
