Hagenauer Male and Female Wall Masks

$9,500

About

Hagenauer male and female wall masks chrome and brass finish. Highly stylized rare and unique pieces made in Vienna, circa the 1940s. Both recently restored in gleaming chrome patina which is contrasted by the brass details portraying the male and female form. Stamped Hagenauer Wien Made in Austria The Hagenauer firm was founded by Carl Hagenauer in Austria, 1898. His son Karl became the head of the company in 1928 after having studied with Joseph Hoffman and winning bronze and silver medals at the Paris Exposition of 1925. His work was most prolific, including many “useful objects” such as mirrors, cigar cutters, bookends, and hood ornaments. He produced humorous and playful figures as well as highly stylized ultra-modern sculptures. He managed Hagenauer Werkstatte until his death in 1956. His younger brother, Franz, focused more specifically on sculpture, often drawing from African art as his inspiration. His long life ( 1906-1986 ) provided him with a long career and many of the most elegant Hagenauer pieces can be attributed to Franz. Though both Karl and Franz produced many animal pieces, beautiful female forms were a specialty of Franz’s. Spanish dancers, models, mythical goddesses, and African natives were sources for his design.
