Bronze ‘Trinkende’ by Seifert*
Classic Art Nouveau bronze nude by Victor Heinrich Seifert titled “Trinkende” which translates in English to ‘Drinking’. Sometimes also known as ‘Thirsty’.
Seifert was born in 1870 and, although mainly known for his statues with a military theme, this particular sculpture was very well received and is still well loved today.
Originally sculpted around 1900, this example bears the foundry mark of H. Gladenbeck & Son, one of Berlin’s most famous foundries. It is also signed Seifert on the socle.
A delightful bronze with a pleasing mid to golden-brown patina and mounted on a square verde antico marble base. It was also produced in both a smaller and larger size, this being the mid-sized one with a total height of approximately 38 cm.
