About

Striking Art Deco sculpture by Arnold Geissbuhler (Swiss, 1897-1993). Sculpture is signed on reverse. Condition is excellent. Arnold Geissbuhler was associated with some of the best known artists of the 20th century including Alberto Giacometti, Antoine Bourdelle, Otto Banninger, Edwin Dickinson, Massimo Campigli and Frederick Waugh. In 1914, Geissbuhler traveled to Zurich to become a sculptor's apprentice in the studio of Otto Munch. He attended the Kunst Gewerbe School and worked as Munch's assistant until 1919. In that year, Geissbuhler went to Paris to study with Antoine Bourdelle at the Academie Julian. He maintained a studio in Paris until 1927, when he travelled to the United States and married Elisabeth Chase, a Boston sculptor whom he met in Bourdelle's class. They moved to New England in 1933, and in 1937 he became an art instructor at Wellesley College. Geissbuhler's work is in collection of Albright-Knox museum, Harvard Art Museum, Boston Art museum, Cape Cod Museum of Art, Cleveland Museum of Art and the Baltimore Museum of Art.
