Isidore Jules Bonheur (1827-1901)

I. Bonheur was a French painter and sculptor .

Isidore first received an artistic apprenticeship from his father Raymond and his older sister Rosa, then , in 1827 , he entered the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris .

After having practiced painting , he sent a group in plaster to the Salon of 1848 an "African horseman attacked by a lioness" ; he is thus oriented towards animal sculpture .
His group "Combat de taureaux" was noticed at the Salon of 1850 .
He then essentially made up groups of small animals .

Isidore Bonheur won medals at the Salons of 1865 and 1869 , and a gold medal at the Universal Exhibition of 1889 in Paris .
He was decorated with the Legion of Honor in 1895 .
