Description of the subject depicted in the print: Among the distinguished foreign artists whom The Great Exhibition of last year attracted hither was M. Jean Leeb, an eminent sculptor of Munich: he brought with him a large and varied number of beautiful drawings and designs for Sculptured works of almost every description, and courteously permitted us to select any we might think proper to engrave. His group representing the son of Niobe struck by the arrow of Apollo appeared well adapted by its classic elegance, and we have had it executed on steel. The horse is finely modeled, in the antique style, but from a beautiful Arabian lent to the sculptor, for this study, by the Crown Prince. Both figures exhibit thorough anatomical knowledge with regard to their respective positions, and come together in as perfect harmony and gracefulness of form as the animated, yet different movements of each will admit. The only portion of the entire work which has an unnatural appearance is the termination of the horse's tail; this is brought down to a solid mass, instead of being broken: but the sculptor's object in so modeling it and resting it upon the pedestal, was, doubtless, to give support to the whole. This group is, we believe, at present only modeled in plaster. Martin2001 Satisfaction Guaranteed Policy !
