Like Roger de Minvielle or Gaston d'Illiers, Henry Regnouf de Vains is one of these gentleman farmers, ardent lovers of horses, equestrian art, the equestrian world and hunting. Like them, he translated the object of his passion into bronze. When exactly did our gentleman farmer take up sculpture? undoubtedly in the early 1880s, perhaps a little earlier, but the fact remains that he presented his first bronze at the 1885 show, under the number 4143. Ange étalon des Haras was noted by critics for its quality of his carving and the sculptor's extreme knowledge of equine anatomy. At the 1886 show, it was Sans Vergogne, a Norman trotter that Henry Regnouf de Vains presented, in wax (under the number 4472, and with a spelling error in his name: Reynouf, which classifies him where we do not don't wait for it!) The following year (1887) under the number 4412, he delivered a Broodmare and her foal, in bronze, undoubtedly his most common group on the current art market. The Salon of 1888 earned him a laudatory review from Ernest HOSCHEDÉ in La Cocarde (May 18, 1888), well deserved for his life-size stallion (number 4568) L'Alsacien, stallion of the stud administration. His growing talent and reputation allowed him to join the Living Artists and it was as a member that at the 1889 salon, he exhibited under the number 4867 Brr… what cold! returning from hunting. Stallion and Mare, such is the wax group that he presented at the 1890 salon (number 4397). This will be his last participation in the Show. His works are very rare, because they have been published very little, Henry Regnouf de Vains having comfortable income between the exploitation of his lands, and his Annex of Remonte, which he did not need that which could bring him the edition of his bronzes. In addition to our Cobesse mare, we also know of him a group, Return of the Hunt, and Mounted Trot.
