Biography from Red Fox Fine Art:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Comte Arthur Du Passage was born at the Chateau de Bernaville in Fisheu le Grand on 24 June, 1838. He was a nobleman by birth and was destined for a career in the military, yet, he and his younger brother Vicomte du Passage were fascinated by animals and birds at an early age. Each would pursue his artistic interests during free time.

Comte du Passage studied sculpting with Antoine-Louis Barye and Pierre Jules Mêne but also became known for his drawings and paintings. While serving in the army, he suffered an accident and was paralyzed from the waist down, confining him to a wheel chair. As a result, he left the army and retired to the family home, the Chateau de Bernaville. There, with the help of his assistant he was able to spend most days drawing and modeling at the stables.

Du Passage first exhibited at the Salon in 1865 with his sculpture of a hare and would continue exhibit works until 1893, including La Mort du Chevreuil in 1865, Franc-Picard, Cheval de Steeplechase in 1866, Steeplechasse, Le Sant de la Barriere in 1867, and Cheval de Chasse an Trottier in 1881, among others.
