Herbert HASELTINE (1877-1962)

The son of a famous American painter, Herbert Haseltine attempted a traditional education at Harvard before turning to drawing at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich in 1899, then training in painting at the Académie Julian in Paris. He received an honorable mention at the Salon des Artistes Français in 1906 and his work was quickly noticed. A great lover of Polo, he understands the morphology and attitudes of horses and restores them in a unique way in his sculptures. His lines are round, pure and surprisingly fresh. This is what will make his success. He quickly received prestigious orders, including one for the stallion of King George V in 1921 ('shire stallion, Field Marshal V'). He then continued to sculpt champions of various breeds, both horses and other livestock. From 1922 to 1924, he traveled throughout England, Scotland and Ireland, where he created one of his most famous works: a set of twenty sculptures representing the champion domestic breeds of Great Britain. His work, sometimes compared to that of Pompon, is rare on the market. It is held in major international collections, both public and private.
