Louis Riché (1877 - 1949) was born on 29 May 1877 in Paris, France. His first exhibition at the Salon in Paris was in 1896 at the age of nineteen. Riché designed many animal motifs, but his favourite models were German Shepherds, in which he is considered a master of reproduction. He mainly worked with the Thiebault Freres foundry to cast his models. Some of his Risler et Carré lion sculptures were also cast in silver.
Masterful realistic and large depiction of a shepherd dog in a beautiful dark green patina. The depiction was awarded the highest distinction of the city of Paris, the Medaille D`OR, around 1910/20. The Médaille de la Ville de Paris is an award given by the Mayor of Paris since 1911. Excellent condition, museum collector's item!
