Kochendörfer Bust of a Noblewoman*
Large and impressive terracotta bust by the noted German sculptor Fritz Kochendörfer (b. 1871).
The lady is wearing a sumptuous gown of deep red and gold and her long hair is tied back in an ornate roll on top and at the back, held in place with tightly wound ribbons.
She looks to be a woman of noble birth but the central cartouche, enclosed by its ornate scrollwork, is left blank so we can only guess at her identity.
On each side of the wide base Venus is depicted with Cupid in close attendance.
With the impressed Kochendörfer seal beneath showing the date of 1891, also numbered verso 177.8.1020
Just over 50 cm high and around 46 cm wide.
