"Art Nouveau Bronze - The Prince Impérial with His Dog Néro, sign"
This beautiful Art Nouveau Bronze with the title "The Prince Impérial with His Dog Néro" was created in 1865, as part of a sculpture group by the French artist and sculptor Jean Baptiste Carpeaux. It shows a boy, standing upright and facing forward with a relaxed facial expression, while he is stroking his dog. The dog in turn looks devotedly at his master and enjoys the attention he receives. The moving scene is a reflection of friendship and trust and delights the beholder. While doing so, the Art Nouveau sculpture is made very detailed; such as the prince’s jacket with the small ribbon or the folds at his knickerbockers, the figure seems very naturally and even the dog is very realistically. The cute pair of figures is standing on a small square bronze pedestal, is made of 100% finest bronze and is signed by its creator Jean Baptiste Carpeaux.
As all of the bronze products in our shop, this exhibit is hand-cast in our own foundry and subject to our strict quality inspections throughout the entire process of fabrication. All of our sculptures are exclusively compounded with the help of lost-wax casting.

The French artist and sculptor Jean Baptiste Carpeaux made this charming Art Nouveau bronze "The Prince Impérial with His Dog Néro" in 1865 as a part of a sculpture group of marble. Later the figure of the boy with his dog was reduced and exhibited separately. Carpeaux was born on May 14, 1827 in Valenciennes in France. After he earned his keep by the making of models for the artistic industry, he studied at the famous art academy École nationale supérieure des beaux-arts de Paris. Inter alia he was a student of the sculptors Francisque Joseph Duret and François Rude and received the Prix de Rome at an exhibition of the Académie Française in 1854, which brought him first reputation. With the help of a travel scholarship he travelled through Italy and visited Rome, where he studied the works of the antique masters. However he was also interested in Modern Arts and developed his own style, which was finally established with the bust “La Palombella”. After an exhibition in Valenciennes he went back to Rome, where he made, inspired by Dante Alighieri, the sculpture “Ugolino and his Sons”, one of his most famous works. In 1862 Carpeaux came again back to France and founded an atelier in Paris. The figure “La Danse” at the front of the Paris Opera is recognized as his major work. It is a sculpture, sparkling with excitement, love of life and temperament. Jean Baptiste Carpeaux died on October 12, 1875 at the age of 48 in Courbevoie near Paris.
