"Bronze Statue - Small Female Torso (1910), signed W. Lehmbruck"
This Modern Art Sculpture with the title “Small Female Torso” was made after an idea of the famous German sculptor and graphic designer Wilhelm Lehmbruck. The sculpture was executed in 100% bronze and is – like the original – also known as „Hagener Torso“. The original version of „Small Female Torso“ was executed in 1910 by Lehmbruck. But the artist Lehmbruck didn’t originally used bronze; he created his sculpture of stone. Even most of the sculptures made by the artist are known as parts of other sculptures, this one is a single executed sculpture. While creating his sculpture „Hagener Torso“ Lehmbruck focused on creating a modern and lightly abstract sculpture of a female torso without arms and legs but with a small head. The head of this modern art object is not just kind of small, it is also a very young version of a female head, while the torso itself looks very female and more like the torso of an adult. The bronze sculpture was set on a little rock made of bronze and was signed with the signature „W. Lehmbruck“. Another feature of this sculpture is the depiction Lehmbruck used to create this sculpture; this sculpture is characterized by the same anonymity like all the other sculptures of the sculptor.
As all of the bronze products in our shop, this exhibit is hand-cast in our own foundry and subject to our strict quality inspections throughout the entire process of fabrication. All of our sculptures are exclusively compounded with the help of lost-wax casting.
