WHEN

WHERE
The Walters Art Museum

WHAT
The Walters Art Museum has organized an exhibition of over 160 works devoted to French artist Antoine-Louis Barye (1796–1875), the foremost animal sculptor or animalier of the 19th century. This is the first exhibition in recent times to emphasize the full range of Barye’s production, including not only his well-known bronze sculptures but also his oil paintings, watercolors and sketches. These pieces are drawn primarily from the Walters’ Barye collection, which rivals the Louvre both in scope and significance. These artworks will reveal the breadth of his subjects including both exotic and game animals, equestrian and sporting art, and the human form.
