Style and power
Small bronze horse, perfectly accomplished by Debraux. The sculpture represents style as well as power.
The founder, also called ‘Debraux d’Anglures’, began participating in expositions of industrial products in 1834. He was the first manufacturer to be titled as an ‘Editor of Art’ in 1839.
In 1837 he made the cast for the impressive statue by Emmanuel-Philibert of Savoie, which is on the square in Turin.
The studio of Debraux also casted other works by this artist as well as for a number of artists including Gechter, Fauginet and Barye.
