Jules Moigniez (28 May 1835 – 29 May 1894) was a French animalier sculptor who worked during the 19th century. His output was primarily cast in bronze and he frequently exhibited his sculptures at the Paris Salon. He was best known for his bronzes depicting birds, although his skill and versatility enabled him to produce quality horse sculptures (primarily racehorses), dog sculptures and hunting scenes.[1] His bird sculptures were among the finest ever created in his time.[2]
Over the course of his 40-year sculpting career Moigniez exhibited thirty works at the Salon between 1855–92. His first submission in a major art exhibition was his plaster, Pointer Stopping at a Pheasant, at the Exposition Universelle of 1855.[1][2] Moigniez was known for the fine detail and chiseling of his sculptures. His bronzes—usually cast using the lost wax method—were always immaculately chased and patinated, and were especially popular in England and Scotland.[2] More than half of his output during his lifetime was sold in the United Kingdom. By the end of the 19th century, his sculpture had become popular in the United States as well.[1]

Froment-Meurice was hugely successful at exploiting the international expositions of the 1840s and 50s to gain a large international clientele and a widely fashionable reputation. Only days after his death in February 1855 a contemporary journalist, Jules Janin, noted that, among others, the Tsar of Russia, the Pope and both Queen Victoria and Prince Albert owned works by Froment-Meurice.


In the course of her many visits to the Great Exhibition Queen Victoria made at least four calls at the stand of Froment-Meurice, one of the most successful goldsmiths and jewellers in France, who was once described by Victor Hugo as the Cellini of his age. One of Froment-Meurice's strengths was stylistic versatility. He is perhaps best known for Renaissance and Gothic revival pieces, but his naturalistic works also won high praise. He won a Council Medal at the Great Exhibition and became well known in England. Prince Albert spent £70 5s. on oxidised silver articles from his stand while Queen Victoria noted ‘some fine pieces of jewelry executed by M. Froment Meurice from whom we have bought some things’; she purchased ‘some trifles’ from the stand in October.
