The Charles VI Frightened in the Forest of Le Mans by Antoine-Louis Barye (1795-1875) is also part of the Romantic movement. Although the bronze exhibited is later than 1893, the original model was presented to the Salon in 1833. This historical episode describes the first fit of madness of King Charles VI, in 1392. It is rendered with the energy and vigour that characterise this movement, quick to turn to the rediscovery of the Middle Ages.
