Madonna in the style of the Hagenauer Werkstätten
Height of the sculpture, without base: 26 cm
This contemplative interpretation of the Madonna was carried out in the style of Hagenauer Werkstätte around 1950. The head is slightly bowed and she wears a somber face with her eyes closed. Her stylized cylindrical cloak is molded from white sheet metal. The sculpture draws an air of sublimity from its curved flowing lines.
The Madonna is in good condition with minimal signs of wear, such as a small stain in the metal at the back of the base. The height of the sculpture measures 26 cm without the base. With base, it stands 28.5 cm tall. (amb)
