Description
Dal modello di Vincenzo Gemito - woman's bust (1) - Bronze (patinated) - mid 20th century
Italy

Elegant and antique bronze bust by Vincenzo Gemito (from his foundry) with hallmark on the back, although barely visible.
Good conditions as in the pictures; some minor signs of ageing and a small patina loss near the nose due to an impact. Some small holes (melting flaw) under the base.
Also the base is in bronze: Gemito’s bronze works always presents these back “wings” between the base and the bust.
With a nice patina, very well chiselled.
You can always note the great artistic mastery that Gemito communicates with his bronze works in the details of the face, the mass of the hair, the beautiful embroidered edge of the dress.
Made with lost wax casting technique and double patina.
