"Il destrier punto, ponta i piè all'arena
e sbalza in aria e per lo ciel galoppa;
e porta il cavalliero in su la schena,
e la donzella dietro in su la groppa.
Cosí privò la fera de la cena
per lei soave e delicata troppa.
Ruggier si va volgendo, e mille baci
figge nel petto e negli occhi vivaci."
(Ludovico Ariosto, Orlando Furioso, Canto X, Stanza 112).

Barye noted in his famous Bronze the Moment of salvation Angelicas in front of the sea, Orca. Up until a few moments still as a victim to a rock, tied up, is now in the arms of the knight Ruggiero, who immediately fell in love in you.
The large group is part of a panel paper given by Antoine d'orléans, duc de Montpensier (1824-1890), in the case of Barye in order. This should probably be in competition to be the centerpiece, "La chasse au tigre", which was created by Barye for his older brother, Ferdinand-Philippe d'Orléans, duc d'Orléans and a sensation had taken care of
