Louis-Albert Carvin (1875-1951) Sculpture of German Shepherds
Our sculpture in silvered metal (apparently spelter) on variegated gold and charcoal colored marble by Louis Albert Carvin (1875-1951) dates from circa 1930, and measures approximately 23 by 18 by 7 inches.
Carvin was an accomplished animalier who studied under Emmanuel Fremiet and Georges Gardet at École des Beaux-Arts and was a member of Sociéte des Artistes Français. He is known for his depictions of dogs, cats, horses and birds, plus also Orientalist style works. His best known work is probably La Muse de l’aviation, a trophy commissioned by the Aero Club of Sarthe in 1909 to honor Orville and Wilbur Wright.
