Horse sculptures were an integral part of the production range of the Werkstätte Hagenauer Wien. Whether as static horse heads or dynamic illustrations of galloping or rising horses, we find countless variations spread throughout the entire production period. The stylized portrayal of animals was a popular and recurring motif. Despite their reduced design, Hagenauer’s works delight the viewer with their charming details.
