Terracotta portrait bust of a girl by Henri Weigele
French, late 19th Century
Height 57cm, width 40cm, depth 23cm
This charming portrait bust of a young girl is crafted from terracotta. The young girl is rendered naturalistically, with a poised and graceful expression. She stares straight ahead, her hair falling either side of her face. She wears a lace lined dress, which has been deftly rendered in the terracotta. The bust is raised on a plinth and is signed ‘H. Weigele’.
