Paul Wayland Bartlett created many sculptures of animals during his early career in France. He studied the menagerie of wild creatures at the Jardin des Plantes in Paris and modeled sculptures of domestic animals such as cats, dogs, and goats. In the tradition of the animaliers, he often focused on facial expressions to capture the animal’s emotion.
