- Petersen sculpteur animalier by Liliane Colas, Editions Finzi, 2004, a similar example is described and reproduced on pages 42 and 43.
The catalogue raisonné indicates that a first state (medium size) was created in 1929, a second state of the same size, resumed in 1956 and an enlargement also in 1956. Liliane Colas mentions a bronze cast at Godard's - a unique proof not located... 50 x 60 x 17 cm. Our bronze, a lost wax by Bisceglia, has a remarkable chasing and patina.
