Horse Tamer Sculptures (Pittsburgh)
|Location||Stanton Avenue entrance to Highland Park, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA|
The Horse Tamers are a pair of larger-than-life sculptures in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, located at the Stanton Avenue entrance to Highland Park. They are copies after the famous Marly Horses (Chevaux de Marly) (marble, 1739-45), by sculptor Guillaume Coustou the Elder, that flank the entrance to the Champs-Élysées in Paris. The Highland Park sculptures were modeled by sculptor Giuseppe Moretti, and installed in 1900.
Each depicts a youth attempting to control a rearing horse. The bronze sculptures are approximately 15 feet (4.57 m) tall, and stand upon granite bases approximately 11 feet (3.35 m) tall.
