signed: waagen. sculp and inscribed born in the baltic port of memel, east prussia (now klaipeda, lithuania), max arthur waagen was one of many german artists of baltic extraction who left their homes to pursue careers in one of the major cultural centres of europe, such as st.petersburg, berlin and paris. to this group one might add the sculptors karl-hans bernewitz, alexander von bock and august ludwig weizenberg. waagen chose to move to paris, where he appears to have permanently settled, for his extant works bear exclusively french names and were cast there. for example, the present work is a cast by emile martin's foundry, the entrepreneur who was barye's partner and founder between 1839-1857. the born in the baltic port of memel, east prussia (now klaipeda, lithuania), max arthur waagen was one of many german artists of baltic extraction who left their homes to pursue careers in one of the major cultural centres of europe, such as st.petersburg, berlin and paris. to this group one might add the sculptors karl-hans bernewitz, alexander von bock and august ludwig weizenberg. waagen chose to move to paris, where he appears to have permanently settled, for his extant works bear exclusively french names and were cast there. for example, the present work is a cast by emile martin's foundry, the entrepreneur who was barye's partner and founder between 1839-1857. the livrets de salon reveal that he exhibited there between 1861 and 1887 and that his studio was located at cours-de-vincennes, 40 and later avenue chevalier, 11. from what we know of waagen's work, he was chiefly concerned with the fashion for the oriental: the french fascination with north african culture that began with napoleon's conquest of egypt and continued with french colonial expansion into algeria, morocco and tunisia until the end of the century. the most prominent and successful of the compositions he executed on this theme was the present kabyle au retour de la chasse. this noble and romantic depiction of a berber tribesman from the mountain regions of north africa, shows the subject returning to the village with his dogs and a rescued lamb, while in his outstretched hand he holds up the predator's hide. the size and quality of the present cast, with its polychromy intact, is the best example to have appeared at market and suggests it may well have been the sculptor's original salon exhibition piece. however, without documentary evidence, this cannot be proven. related literature: payne, p.284-5, 423, pl.13; berman, vol.4, p.1180, no.4743; mackay p.388; kjellberg p.647
