Rare cold painted antique Vienna Bronze sculpture by renowed Austrian sculptor Franz Xavier Bergmann.

Franz Xavier Bergman (1861 - 1936) was a most famous Viennese sculptor who produced numerous cold-painted bronze oriental and animal figures. Noted for his detailed and colourful work, and signing either a ´B´ in reverse. Cold painted bronze´ refers to pieces cast in Vienna and then decorated with oil paint. The colour was not fired hence "cold painted". Sensuous poses of young women in the Art Nouveau style were disguised by a covering that revealed all when a button was pushed or a lever moved. Often carefully sculpted animals, such as bears, could be opened to reveal an erotic figure inside.

Literature : Thieme/Becker "Lexicon of artists from antique to contemporary", Leipzig, 1999. Prof.H.Fuchs "Lexicon of Austrian Artists", Vienna, 1975.

Inscription: impressed marks: ´B´ (for Bergmann) on the backside of the carpet.

Technique: cold painted bronze.

Measurements: h 2 3/4" (7cm ), w. 3 3/8" (8,5 cm), depth 3 1/2" (9 cm).
