An Art Deco bronze with original green patine, circa 1925 of a typical �Speed God� by Paris-born Frederic Focht. Signed in the bronze and mounted on a marble base.

Fascinated by the link between human form and stylized machine, Focht�s bronzes have depicted speed gods evolving into aircraft, semi-abstract automobiles and locomotives.

Length: 34 inches (87 cm).

Frederic C. Focht (1879 – 1937) was born in Paris and studied under the celebrated sculptor Falguiere. His remarkable talent was recognised early in his career, exhibiting at the Salon des Artistes Fran�ais and winning the coveted Medal of Honour at the tender age of 21.

Focht was responsible for some of the most striking Art Deco bronzes of the 1920�s and 1930�s and apparently his creative talents did not end there – he is also recorded as having been an opera singer of some note.
