This finely sculptured study of a powerful and muscular panther standing tensed ready to attack with strong clawed paws and a wide snarling mouth showing a dangerous array of teeth. This is a fine example of Thomas Francois Cartier's work who specialised in animal bronzes, particularly big cats.
Tomas Cartier (1879 1943 ) was born in Marseilles, France. He later studied under Georges Gardet gaining skill and experience. He specialised in animal sculptures. Cartier regularly expedited at the Salon and was awarded a gold medal in 1927.
This fine study is in wonderful condition with dark green patination. Circa 1910
