  • It is a very pretty animal sculpture that shows a horse in motion and it wants to pass over a harrow. The horse is in motion because you can see that he turns his head, his mane flies with the wind, he lifts a foot and he leans on his backward paw

  • The Musée d'Orsay is a place for art lovers because, without even bothering to enter, one can admire three superb statues, Horse with the harrow, Young Elephant trapped and the Rhinoceros. When they were created, these three statues were made in light structure with an innovative technique at the time, made of iron cast iron. This low-cost technique allows to make realistic works with natural and life-size attitudes, which bronze did not allow. The Horse at the Herse, is in a situation of movement in this cabrant, which the statue, work of the sculptor Pierre Rouillard (1820-1881), translates with fidelity. Originally created for the 1878 World's Fair, these three statues were placed on the forecourt of the Trocadero Palace (Chaillot Palace, opposite the Eiffel Tower) and placed here in 1985.
