“Michelangelo of the Menagerie: Barye Bronzes”

The Charles Allis Art Museum focuses on its permanent collection in this exhibition
featuring animal sculptures by French artist Antoine-Louis Barye (1795-1875). Barye's
bronzes primarily depict wild species, often in confrontation. Museums around the
world collect the works of this pre-eminent artist of the Romantic period. This exhibition
reflects the cultural aesthetics of Barye's era.
