About

Anthony J. Obara Jr., (American school, born 1948) is a preeminent animalier sculptor, self-taught in the manner of Antoine-Louis Barye, Pierre Jules Mene and Isidore Bonheur, French sculptors of the 18th and 19 centuries. Obara casts each bronze using the traditional cire perdue “lost wax” process and is particularly well-known for his patinas. Obara hand finishes each sculpture with precision and care.  Although a prolific artist, having undertaken more than 275 works to date, he limits editions to five or ten and rarely more than fifteen castings. A low edition ensures the quality of minute detail—down to the sculptor’s fingerprints in every bronze.
