Object Description

This impressive near life-size bronze statue named ‘Bertha’ is made by British artist David Backhouse. It was originally made for his exhibition at the Alwin Gallery in London in 1979. It depicts a crouching nude female in spectacular detail and is inscribed with the numbers ‘1,1’ making it a one-off piece. Signed by the artist, this bronze sculpture has a beautiful patina and a dramatic stance reminiscent of designs associated with the Art Deco period. It is a striking sculpture to bring elegance to an interior or garden.
