Description

This fine bronze sculpture shows a mounted Cossack shading his eyes as he turns to scan the horizon. He is riding a horse with a fur saddle cloth and his legs resting on two enormous saddle bags. Signed ‘A du Passage’

Provenance
Arthur Marie Gabriel, Comte du
Passage, (1838-1909) initially
pursued a military career to
please his family but his natural
talent for sculpture could not be
repressed. He eventually studied
under Barye and Mêne, both
renowned for their skill in the field
of animalier bronzes, and
became proficient enough in
this field to exhibit in the Paris salon from 1865 until 1893.
