Isidore Jules Bonheur

(French, 1827-1901)

Studying painting at first with his father, Raymond, Bonheur then attended L’Ecole Nationale des Beaux-Arts de Paris, switching to sculpture. Exhibiting in both media at his first Paris Salon in 1848, he was a regular from then on. He routinely won medals and prizes, and his small groups of animals showed keen understanding of his subjects.
