Petrel Tempete et Crab

Moigniez, Jules

Jules Moigniez (1835-1894)

Moigniez studied under Comolera and worked as an animalier sculptor. He debuted at the Salon of 1855 and exhibited there regularly until 1881. His father was a metal-gilder who established a bronze foundry in 1857 and cast his son's work. As a result the foundry work and finishing are usually of  a high quality.
