Isidore Jules Bonheur (French, 1827-1901)
HORSE AND JOCKEY
Bronze, 18 1/2" x 18"
Signed, stamped Peyrol Editeur
A rarely seen model, it resembles closely Retour au Pesage (a model exhibited at the Salon in 1886) and another unidentified horse and jockey. There has been speculation that this could be Jument anglaise montee par un Jockey, exhibited at the Salon in 1863, Un Jockey, an 1864 piece, or another later Un Jockey from 1879
