The definitive animal bronzes, renowned for their vigour and authenticity, are those of Antoine-Louis Barye, and there is full coverage of his work here, along with that of others of his school. However, the scope of the book extends well beyond the confines of Les Animaliers to include the output of artists such as Troubetzkoy, Bugatti, Pompon, Haseltine, John Willis Good and Sir Joseph Edgar Boehm. Space is also devoted to several of today's practitioners. The main body of the book is arranged by subject matter, enabling the reader to observe trends in the portrayals of different animals from the 1830s onwards. In addition, the biographical index of artists gives page references to illustrated pieces, so that the work of particular sculptors can also be followed across different subject areas. Other sections of the book offer practical information on subjects including the casting process, later casts and substitute materials, and the importance of colour and patination.

Animals in Bronze is already established as the ideal companion for all lovers of animals in art, and as an indispensable working reference for the collector and the dealer.
