Terra cotta sculpture of a recumbent bloodhound, by Edward Kemeys, an important American sculptor. 19th century.

Edward L. Kemeys (January 31, 1843 – May 11, 1907) was an American sculptor best known for his sculptures of animals, particularly the two bronze lions that mark the entrance to the Art Institute of Chicago Building in Chicago Illinois.  Inspired by the animals he observed on his trips out west from the 1870’s to the 1890’s, he depicted animals in various emotional states.  His “Fight between Buffalo and Wolves” attracted much attention at the Paris salon in 1878. Another bronze statue of a panther named “Still Hunt”, is permanently situated on a rock flanking the East Drive of New York City’s Central Park. His work “Panther and Cubs” can be found in the Metropolitan Museum of ArtNew York City.  This regal bloodhound is a more unusual domestic subject.
