Bronzes Animalia

Who are we?

Lhe idea for a gallery specializing in wildlife art grew out of two family passions: art and nature. Very attached to the Sologne region, we are moved by scenes that remind us of our heartland. Equestrian subjects touch our equestrian souls, and animals from Africa and Asia help to satisfy a third passion, that of travel.

Thibaud Favre d'Echallens developed an early interest in animal sculpture, which he has long collected. After working in the decoration sector (multiple exhibitions at the Salon Maison & Objet in Paris), he bred show jumping horses for over twenty years. Alongside these activities, he has constantly developed his knowledge of animal bronzes, both in terms of understanding the artists and their subjects, and the technical aspects of casting.
