Animalistics

The animalistic collection of the Feldman Family Museum has nearly 110 bronze statuettes of various animals, mainly dogs. All of them refer to the period from the mid-19th to the mid-20th century, which is rightfully considered the Golden Age of Animaliers. The collection contains works by more than 40 representatives of various generations from France, Germany, Austria, Belgium and Russia. A special place among them is occupied by Antoine-Louis Barye, Pierre Jules Mêne, Isidore-Jules Bonheur, Auguste-Nicolas Caïn, Jules-Pierre Moigniez, Emmanuel Frémiet and other prominent representatives of the French school, who have profoundly affected the development of the animalistic genre in European sculpture.
