Bernhard Hoetger "La Pleureuse" Bronze Sculpture



"La Pleureuse," or "The Weeping," is a patinated bronze sculpture in the Art Nouveau style by German artist, Bernhard Hoetger. It depicts in gritty, nearly abstracted and softly defined detail the countenance of a weeping nude female figure, her head pressed resolutely into her hands. Although her face is obscured, the expressiveness of her posture conveys the strength of the emotion of the piece. Artist: Bernhard Hoetger circa 1900 Dimensions: 10.75" height, 3.5" diameter Materials: Bronze Signed: "B. Hoetger".
