"Grand Bronze: Head Of Character, In The Taste Of Messerschmidt"Important bronze with green patina representing a head of expression or head of character in the taste of Franz Xaver Messerschmidt.
This is an important bronze depicting a man's head plunged into a deep sleep, or maybe he's just grinning.
The details are of striking realism, the sculptor has been able to render with great force and mastery this head of character.
The character's features are very well treated, the sculptor emphasized wrinkles, expression lines, wrinkles of the eyelids etc ... until a small wart or a mole on the cheek.
As for Messerscmidt, one finds this hyper realistic spirit of the beauty of the ugly!
The bronze is signed on back A.Medina and numbered PA 1/3.
Superb green patina and bronze.
Work of the 20th century large dimensions, this expression head is full size.
Really a surprising and high quality sculpture.
