Isidore Bonheur was the son of the painter Raymond Bonheur (1796-1849) and a younger brother of Rosa Bonheur (1822-99), the most famous woman artist in 19th-century France. He produced a few sculptures of historical subjects but is best known for his statuettes of animals, particularly those found on farms.
