Bruno Zach (1891-1935)
Bruno Zach was born 1891 in the Ukraine. Among his characteristic works are his female nudes and dancers, showing common stylistic elements of the Art Déco and Art Nouveau period. Zach studied at the Academy of Art in Vienna with Hans Bitterlich and Josef Müllner. While living in Vienna, Zach collaborated with various manufactories, creating numerous extraordinary bronze sculptures illustrating different motifs taken from subjects such as sports, the Orient, the animal world and last but not least erotic themes.
