Product description

"Bronze head with a stretched out tongue - F. X. Messerschmidt"

Weight 5,5 kg

The „character heads” of Franz Xaver Messerschmidt are the touching result of a relentless individual search. The head on the left with the tongue sticking out is probably a self-portrait of the artist. Messerschmidt presents himself as someone who “shows the tongue to the world”. Due to a great interest for physiognomy and under the influence of delusions, he created his series of 60 busts of alabaster and tin, which are commonly referred to as "character heads" and "studies of heads".
