About

Bronze depicting a young boy (cupid) ice skating, by Franz Iffland (Berlin 1862-1935). A boy in fur-trimmed cape, holds a cupid-like feathered arrow with bow. Iffland was a member of the Berliner Bildhauerschule, was active 1885-1915. He became most well-known for his sculptures of young children and women. The richly patinated skater stands upon a tall, dark green marble base. Signed F. Iffland; Germany circa 1900. Franz Iffland, boy / cupid. Well listed artist, Franz Iffland was born in 1862 in Berlin, Germany and died there in 1935. Iffland created bronze portrait busts of young women. He was a painter as well; however, he is primary known for his bronze statues of young children. The majority of his work was produced during the art nouveau period from 1880 to 1910, but late in his career he produced a number of art deco bronzes of nude women and ordinary working people such as blacksmiths and farmers. He presented his work in bronze at the Great Art Exhibition held in Berlin in 1892. A photo of a typical Iffland bronze of a young girl, entitled "Hands on Hips", can be seen on page 595 in Vol. III of Bronze, Sculptors & Founders by Harold Berman.Submitted by Mike Parker, collector of work by the artist.
