About

Frederic C. Focht (Born 1879, died circa 1937) Frederic Focht was born in Paris in 1879 and studied under the celebrated sculptor Falguiere. His remarkable talent was recognized early in his career, exhibiting at the Salon des Artistes Français and winning the coveted Medal of Honour in 1900 at the tender age of 21. Focht was responsible for some of the most striking bronzes of the 1920s and 1930s. Apparently his talents did not end there, he is also recorded as having been an opera singer of some note. Focht created this spectacular large-scale bronze entitled ‘Man in Flight’, circa 1930. Vividly rendered in dark green patine, this imposing bronze depicts a highly stylized speed god, supported by another crouching male, both atop a globe, the sculpture mounted on its original stepped nero portoro marble plinth. Signed FOCHT in the bronze.
