A handsome large bronze by Leopold Chambard (1811-1895) of a woodcutter bending a bunch of sticks over his knee, entitled “Le Bucheron – Le fable de la Fontaine”. Leopold Chambard was born in Saint Amour on 25th August 1811, he en-rolled in the school of Beaux Arts in 1836, studying painting and sculpture under Ingres and David D’Angers. He won the prize of Rome in 1837 and prize of the school in 1842. He exhibited at the Salon in Paris from 1841 to 1868. His work was heavily influenced by the Greek classics and major works included, “Bacchus” and “Modesty” (carved in marble). He also sculpted many portrait busts and statues which were cast in bronze. More minor works include “Love Entrained”, “The Flight into Egypt” and “Adam & Eve” (an interpretation of an early Greek sculpture).

Le Bucheron was inspired by the Greek classics, it was most likely made from the original moulds shortly after Chambard’s death in around 1900.
