Auguste Nicholas Ca?n (November 16, 1822 - August 6, 1894) was a noted French sculptor in the Animaliers school, known for his portrayals of wild and domesticated animals.Ca?n was born in Paris, and studied under Rude, Guionnet, and Pierre-Jules M?ne (whose daughter he married in 1852). His first exhibit in the Salon of 1846 was a wax model of a linnet defending her nest from a rat, later cast in bronze and shown at the 1855 Salon. Between 1846-1888, Ca?n exhibited 38 models at the Salon.From 1868 onwards he concentrated on monuments, including the Chiens de meute at the Ch teau de Chantilly, Le Lion de Nubie et sa proie in the Jardin du Luxembourg, and Tigress and Peacock in the Gardens of the Tuileries. In 1879 he assumed management of his father-in-law''s foundry upon M?ne''s death.The son of Ca?n was Henri Ca?n, well known librettist.
Sometimes called by the French name of ''cire perdue'' or the Latin, ''cera perduta'' is the process by which a bronze or brass is cast from an artist''s sculpture.

In industrial uses, the modern process is called investment casting. An ancient practice, the process today varies from foundry to foundry, but the steps which are usually used in casting small bronze sculptures in a modern bronze foundry are generally quite standardised.
