Description

This superb patinated bronze group is after a model created in 1860 by the Russian sculptor Nikolai Ivanovich Lieberich, who lived between 1828 and 1883. The group depicts two Cossacks and their horses: the Cossacks kneel on the group to capture a wolf, while their horses stand in the background and their dogs crouch and growl nearby. The figures are deftly rendered in an excellent display of naturalistic art and are richly patinated in a variegated manner. The entire group is set on a naturalistic integral base set above a wooden plinth.

The bronze is signed ‘Sculp. Lieberich’, marked for the Woerffel foundry in St. Petersburg, and is dated 1884.
