Nikolai Iwanowitsch Lieberich

Biography from Sotheby's London, New Bond Street

Colonel Nikolai Lieberich (1828-1883) was one of the first Russian artists to make the move from rigid academism to naturalism in sculpture.  His works offer a glimpse into the lives of distinctive national types, including officers, hunters and peasants, as well as faithful and dynamic representation of animals.  An avid hunter himself, Lieberich captures the tradition of hare hounding with precision and attention to detail. 

When his works were exhibited at the 1862 International Exhibition in London, an article in The Times noted that Lieberich bronzes ‘ their perfect finish, their spirit and lifelikeness cannot be compared to anything else in this category presented at the exhibition’.
