    In the 1920s, Franz Hagenauer attended the sculpture class of Anton Hanak at the Vienna School of Arts and Crafts. His incomparable genius and sense of shape were already evident there. In the 1930s, from which our work also originates, Franz Hagenauer achieved masterful designs and executions of head representations. The present figure may have been created for the so-called “Kultraum” at the 1925 Paris World’s Fair, which was used and furnished by Anton Hanak’s pupils.

    Sacred themes were rarely chosen by the Werkstatte Hagenauer. This makes the depiction of Jesus Christ particularly significant. In extremely elaborate workmanship, chased brass and copper, as well as enamel, are used here. Considering this as an early work of the Viennese sculptor, above all, the detailed execution of the facial features is characteristic and stands in complete contrast to his later reduced designs.

    The finely crafted head sculpture holds a special place in any collection and is a true enrichment.
