Premier Prix Trophy by Christofle

About

This Premier Prix statue, commissioned by the Ministries of Agriculture and Commerce, embodies the highest of French values by ennobling traditional farm work with world-class artistry and rich materials. The silvered-bronze statue of a prize-winning bull surmounts a pedestal of red marble, which is encircled with a laurel of bronze embellished with the same thick layer of silver as the bull. The work was cast by the Parisian firm Christofle, the royal silversmiths of King Louis-Philippe and Emperor Napoleon III. The thick layering of silver emphasizes Jacquemart's detailed, naturalistic treatment of the bull's musculature and coat. Individual hairs can be easily seen along with footprints in the soil. Well known for his agricultural subjects and a frequent exhibitor at the prestigious Paris Salon, Jacquemart was commissioned by Christofle and the Ministry of Agriculture to create a limited number of these sculptures.
