Victor Chemin | French, 1825-1901
Little is known of Victor Chemin, beyond the fact that he was a pupil of the renowned Animalier master Antoine-Louis Barye.
We know what he first exhibited at the Salon in 1851 and that he was a regular exhibitor from 1857 to 1894. His subjects were for the most part dogs, foxes, hares and monkeys. Chemin died in Neuilly-sur-Seine in 1901.
