Jules Moigniez worked predominantly in the third quarter of the 19th Century, and achieved widespread recognition for his exceptionally detailed, vivid depictions of animals, especially game birds and hunting hounds. These bronze dog figures, full of energy and alertness, are typical of Moigniez's naturalistic, vivid style.
Each dog is shown standing upright, with its head pointed back, and its tail pointed out, as if having noticed something on the ground. The figures are shown standing on oval-shaped naturalistic bases, cast with leaves and foliage, as if in a woodland scene. The bases are signed 'J. Moigniez'.
Moigniez frequently exhibited his animal sculptures - mainly in bronze - at the Paris Salon, and especially between the years 1855 and 1881. These particular models of dogs were exhibited in 1865.
