Bronze with medal patina: Ravageot and Ravageole, two sitting dogs, one of them surprised by a snail, signed Frémiet.
Emmanuel Frémiet was born in 1824 in Burgundy, and was the nephew of the famous sculptor François Rude.
As a frequent visitor to the Jardin des Plantes, he acquired a solid knowledge of animal anatomy and thus developed his production of sculptures in this field.
After having seen his works published by Susse Fondeur, he published them himself until 1872. Charles More took over until the death of the artist in 1910.
His production of animals and characters, another field in which he excelled, made him win numerous successes in no less illustrious competitions.
