About

Stunning Bronze Figurine Group: King David and Bathsheba ORIGIN OF MANUFACTORY: VIENNA / Franz Bergmann Vienna Bronze Foundry DATING: manufactured circa 1905 MATERIAL: solid bronze TECHNIQUE OF MANUFACTURE: bronze / casting technique / cold painted / antique original patina HALLMARKED by sign of foundry Franz Bergmann, Vienna & characters 'Nam Greb' (= 'BERGMANN' IN REVERSE) visible on item's reverse side. Franz Xaver Bergman (or Franz Xaver Bergmann / 1861–1936) was the owner of a Viennese foundry who produced numerous patinated and cold-painted bronze Oriental, erotic and animal figures, the latter often humanized or whimsical, humorous objects d'art. Noted for his detailed and colorful work, and signing either a 'B' in an urn-shaped cartouche or 'Nam Greb' - 'Bergman' in reverse. [ WIKIPEDIA ] This Viennese Bronze Group of Figurines is depicting the Jewish KING DAVID ACCOMPANIED BY HIS MISTRESS BATHSHEBA: The old long-bearded ruler is situated in half-reclined position on a settee covered with a fur-lined textile / the king's feet are hidden by a blanket. David wearing a royal headgear seizes the sceptre / additionally, there is the Star of David visible on his coat/cope. The king's unclothed mistress Bathsheba wearing only a feathered headdress has taken place opposite him: Bathsheba had been wife of one of David's officers having been sent to the front by the king who married his pregnant mistress after her husband's death in war. - This Tale of Bible was often pictured in occidental fine arts. Please note excellent modelling which is a characteristic feature of Viennese Bronzes: Look, please, at Bathsheba's nude sculpture as well as at the detailed modelling of king's figurine.
