Isidore Jules Bonheur (1827-1901) was born in Bordeaux, the third child of Raymond Bonheur and brother of Rosa Bonheur, also a sculptor. In 1849 he enrolled at the Ecole des Beaux Arts, though he had made his debut at the Paris Salon the previous year. He was both a painter and a sculptor, but is better known for the latter. He produced numerous small bronzes of animals, mainly sheep and cattle, as well as larger studies of groups of horses. He exhibited regularly at the Royal Academy in London and won a medal in 1889.
