Nude on her knees
Ponts de Paris
Several examples of kneeling young women with arms raised were found but nothing came closer than Berlin sculptor Josef Limburg’s (1874-1955) and his “Lorelei”.
All suggestions and information is welcomed.
Solving riddles and trying to find unidentified work of art and forgotten artists etc.. can be very rewarding. It can also be frustrating. Sometimes a picture is all that is left or delivered to us of a work of art: forgotten, destroyed, neglected or stolen.
Finding this creative old postcard (with text also in Croatian) and printed from a glass-plate negative original was the beginning of such a search. It is is so far without result. Being published on a postcard meaning also this beautiful statute or sculpture ones was well known and probably part of a museum or park collection.
