Isidore Jules Bonheur
Isidore Jules Bonheur (French, 1827–1901)
JOCKEY À CHEVAL
Bronze, 18 ½” x 18”
Signed, stamped “Peyrol Editeur”
A rarely seen model, this lot closely resembles Retour au Pesage (a model exhibited at the Salon in 1886) and another unidentified horse and jockey. ere has been speculation that this could be Jument Anglaise Montée Par un Jockey, exhibited at the Salon in 1863; Un Jockey, an 1864 piece; or another, later Un Jockey from 1879.
