Rare, large sized version of ‘Windy Day’, an erotic bronze figure of a young dancer, with fine cold painted decoration and excellent detail throughout. Her skirt lifts to reveal her naked body. Signed ‘Nam Greb’ and ‘B’ in a vase .
Franz Xavier Bergman was the son of Franz Bergman (1830-1894) who established The Bergman Foundry in the 1860’s. After his father’s death, Bergman continued the business developing the cold painted bronze groups including animals, oriental scenes and erotica. Bergman is arguably the most famous of the Viennese cold-painted bronze artists and with his great attention to detail and use of colours remains one of the most popular.
Reference: Austrian Bronzes by Joseph Zobel, p233, and Bronze Sculptures & Founders by Harold Berman, p942.
