HARRIET WHITNEY FRISHMUTH Original Antique 1921 Bronze Sculpture The Vine
HARRIET WHITNEY FRISHMUTH Original Antique 1921 Bronze Sculpture The Vine. Best known for her bronzes, her oeuvre includes a wide variety of works. Such as public installation sculptures, fountains, household bronzes, and even hood ornaments. While her work to some extent embodies the Art Deco spirit, it also bears an air of classical sophistication, likely due to her time studying with Auguste Rodin and other European sculptors during her formative years. The current work is a premier example of the household bronzes she produced in association with the Gorham Manufacturing Company in the 1920s. Formally sophisticated, sensuous, and evocative, it is pleasurable to look at and experience at both the material and metaphysical (or aesthetic, spiritual) levels. The nude is simultaneously delicate and substantial, which reveals the skill of the sculptress and her mastery of the material. In “The Vine, ” one observes a lingering affinity for the Art Nouveau. The sculpture has a lovely and varying green-brown patina, and stands on a marble base. Including the base, it measures 12.5″ tall x 7″ wide. The sculpture is in very good condition with a couple small scratches. The base has a few small chips around the edges. The felt on the bottom of the base may have been replaced.
