Book Description:
Untamed: The Art of Antoine Louis Barye William R. Johnston A wide ranging and penetrating look at one of the greatest sculptors of the nineteenth century. Antoine Louis Barye s animal sculptures are celebrated as much for their technical brilliance and painstaking detail as for their uncanny resemblance to their subjects. Principally known as an animal sculptor, he was also a consummate modeler of the human form. This volume gathers Barye s works from the Walters Art Museum in Baltimore, whose collection of the artist s work is second only to that of the Louvre. In addition to the artist s magnificent and anatomically accurate sculptures, the book also features his often overlooked paintings and drawings. A critical examination of his techniques draws on recent conservation work, and thoughtful assessments of the critical debates surrounding his work provide new insights for scholars and enthusiasts of nineteenth century sculpture. William R. Johnston, Senior Curator at the Walters Art Museum, Baltimore, is a widely recognized authority on nineteenth century French art.
