Rembrandt Bugatti's animal sculptures

Ettore also had a very gifted brother, Rembrandt. Sculpture was his main interest, he spent a large part of his life in the Antwerp Zoo, studying Animals and making very lively sculptures of them. He really could capture the spirit of these animals, which is a little visible in the below pictures of a panther, made in 1910.

He studied the various typical positions of these animals, as you can see below in the panther sculptures.

He was a very unhappy man, and killed himself in 1917.......
