Length: 31 inches (79 cm)

Frederic Focht was born in Germany in 1879 and studied under the celebrated sculptor Falguiere after he moved to Paris. His remarkable talent was recognised early in his career, exhibiting at the Salon des Artistes Français and winning the coveted Medal of Honour in 1900 at the tender age of 21. Focht was responsible for some of the most striking bronzes of the 1920’s and 1930’s, this being one particularly fine example. Apparently his talents did not end there however, he is also recorded
as having been an opera singer of some note.
