'Alpine Chic' by Frederic Focht, circa 1930

The work of German-born sculptor Frederic Focht (1879-1940) has always been a particular favourite of ours, and our clientele. Focht’s bronzes usually evoke the Machine Age - heroic Titans morphing into aeroplanes, Amazon women in rocket-powered jetboats, and so on.

Here is something very different - an unusual, hitherto unknown work by Focht depicting an attractive female skier attired in the fashionable ‘Alpine chic’ look of the Art deco period, making her snowy descent to lunch, almost certainly in St. Moritz...

Of large proportion, in common with most of Focht’s work, this charming bronze retains its original dark green patina and portoro marble base. Signed Fred. C. Focht, German, circa 1930.
