A beautiful and captivating Art Nouveau alabaster sculpture by the German artist, Fritz Kochendörfer (1871-1942). An exceptionally fine little masterpiece, the way the woman's profile is emerging from the stone resembles the work of the Italian Impressionist sculptor, Medardo Rosso, though it was probably inspired by the great Italian sculptor Valmore Gemignani (see inscription on the side).
Signed on a bronze plaque, indicating a date of ca. 1890-1900, (from 1904, Kochendörfer used the title received from the Grand Duke Friedrich von Baden in his company name) and with inscribed numlbers.
14 X 8,5 cm
14,5 cm high
Overall in very good condition with one small hairline around the neck (probably naturally present in the stone). A beauttiful cabinet/ collector's piece.
