Patinated Bronze Melancholy Statue by Jan Stursa (1880-1925) on marble base

Austro Hungarian

“Štursa was not influenced by Czech National Revival as the older sculptors but tried to find his own way. The female body was his frequent motif, for example in “Before taking bath”, 1906 [1] or “The Melancholy Girl”, 1906 [2]. A monumental couple of figures decorates the pylons of Hlávka Bridge in Prague. In addition to stone and bronze he also used plaster and wax. Later, he was influenced by cubism. Portrait painting was an important part of his works.”
