Arthur Waagen

Arthur Waagen (1833 – 1898) was a German sculptor living and working in France. He was born in East Prussia, now Lithuania, and traveled to Paris where he set up his studio at 40, Cours-de-Vincennes. He is best known for high quality and realistic portrayal of animals, particularly dogs, and for his modelings with a North African and Orientalist flavor. He regularly exhibited his work at the Parisian Salons from 1869 to 1887 and many of his pieces can be seen in Museums around the world today.
