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.
