A highly evocative Art Deco bronze, depicting a typical ‘Speed God’ by French sculptor Frederic C. Focht (1879-1937). The silvered and gilded bronze portrays the sculptor’s willingness to embrace the Machine Age in a period of history where the emergence of powered transport was idolized. Signed in the bronze Fred. C. Focht, and mounted on a polished plain black marble base. French, circa 1925.

Length: 34 inches (87 cm)
Height: 21 inches (53 cm)

Frederic Focht was born in Paris in 1879 and studied under the celebrated sculptor Falguiere. 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 1920s and 1930s.
