Piano player, Franz Hagenauer, Werkstatte Hagenauer Vienna, ca. 1970, brass, nickel-plated, marked
Out of stock
Concentrated and with great devotion, the elegant gentleman plays the piano, and invites us to move to the imagined beat of the music.
In fine evening attire, stylized by vivid metal appliqués and precise chiseling, the piano player has dressed himself up. Precisely observing, Franz Hagenauer captures the scene in a finely drawn silhouette with loving details. The carefully tied bow tie, the prominent collar of the tuxedo, and the attached cufflinks all appear in a very lively manner.
In an outstanding way, Franz Hagenauer succeeds in reducing physical features to a flat, almost two-dimensional plane, which is so characteristic of the late creative period of the Werkstatte Hagenauer.
The strong appearance of the life-size piano player is further emphasized by his impressive height of almost 63 inches.
