Barye was the foremost of a group of nineteenth-century French sculptors who specialised in small bronzes of animal subjects. They exploited newly developed techniques of mass reproduction to generate numerous casts of their models for a growing middle-class market, some which continued to be cast into the twentieth century. Barye’s models of birds of prey and hunting animals, such as this panther, were particularly admired and sought after.
