This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Arthur Waagen was a well-respected animal sculptor who worked in the mid-19th century.  Very little is known about his life.  His most famous work is the large hunt group titled Kabayle au Retour de la Chasse of a North African horseman with his dogs and prey.  He also created several smaller groups of Greyhounds, one playing with a Persian cat and another playing with a King Charles Spaniel.

Biography from Christie's:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Born in East Prussia (now Lithuania), Arthur Waagen pursued his career as a sculptor in Paris where he set up his studio at 40, Cours-de-Vincennes.  He was renowned for his fine and realistic modelling, and produced a series of groups with a North African flavour, exhibiting at the Salon from 1869 to 1887.

The present group of a Berber tribesman, also known as Chasseur arabe or Cavalier aux chiens, was conceived circa 1870.  A fine example of the Orientalist genre, it is the artist's most prominent and successful model.  Another cast is in the Dahesh Museum, New York.
