This very famous Art Nouveau sculpture was made by the great American sculptor Harriet Whitney Frishmuth in 1923. "The Vine" portrays an elegant naked woman holding a tendril of vine in her hands. It can almost be described as an embrace – a symbiosis of nature and humanity. The very fine lines of this adorable graceful figurine underline the peaceful and harmonic atmosphere, that surrounds this bronze. It is set on a green marble base, that rounds off the naturalistic impression of this wonderful masterpiece. The amazing Art Nouveau sculpture is made of 100% bronze and dark polished marble and also contains the signature of H. Frishmuth at the bottom.
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.
