Lot 3017 | Otto Poertzel, Art - deco - Lady
Otto PoertzeLänge: Scheibe-Alsbach 1876 - 1963 Coburg. Studies at the Academy in Munich, and since 1913 Professor. Important German sculptor, his subjects include figures, animals, dancers. Numerous international exhibitions. In the present case, in wood and ivory carved Madonna with child, around 1910/20. On a centrally recessed Base and a hint of Earth, crowned mother of God, in her right Arm that held the child Jesus holding. This has raised the right Hand in blessing gesture and the other from a cross crowned world holds in the left Hand ball. Mother and child look at the viewer head-on. The flesh tones of the figures, faces and hands are made of ivory and highlighted by the strong colour contrast of the bright and ivory by the sculptor used dark wood, as well as the ivory-carved crowned globe. At the Base of the rear signature "Prof. O. Poertzel". Height of the figure: approx. 36 cm. In contrast to most of the Bronze sculptures of Otto Poertzels it is an individually crafted and unique, probably a job working for a wealthy collector.
