Moigniez gained recognition for his modelling skills in 1862 when he was presented with a medal at the Great Exhibition held in London. Moigniez's original patinas and methods of gilding are particularly evident in his lifetime works, which were cast in a foundry opened by his father, a metal gilder by trade. After Moigniez death, the foundry, later headed by August Gouge, continued to cast the artist's work into the beginning of the 20th century. Susse Freres also produced posthumous works by Moigniez.
