    Additional Information & Condition

    The artist created several sculptures of this dog being his most famous dog model. 15 casts of the present bronze are known. Three of them are in important collections in Zagreb, Split and in the collection Drago Mađera (cf. Duško Kečkemet, Branislav Dešković. Monografija, Zagreb 1977). The oeuvre of the sculptor who mainly worked with bronze is characterized by the expressiveness of his animal sculptures.

    The bronze is in good condition. The patina is somewhat stained, especially to the area of the back.

    Branislav Dešković (1883-1939)
    The Croatian sculptor Branislav Dešković began his education at the beginning of the 20th century at the Academy of Arts in Venice under Antonio Dal Zotto. Afterwards he went to Vienna followed by Paris where he met Auguste Rodin. Later he stayed for some time in Sarajevo, Dalmatia and Montenegro before he settled down in Split. Dešković is regarded as impressionist sculptor and is well-known for his expressive animal sculptures (mainly horses and dogs). (msc)
