"Europa and the Bull" Fine and Rare Art Deco Bronze Tray
This lovely and elegant scene, depicting Europa on her mythological bull, surrounded by nude bathers carrying water jars and towels, was sculpted by Fritz Nuss in the late 1940s. One of Germany's few sculptors who continued working in a classicized Art Deco mode shortly after the end of World War II, Nuss sculpted an array of high quality bronze trays and bowls featuring stylized nudes. Nuss sculpted the bronze doors for the Stuttgart Liederhalle, and became well-known as a medallist, some examples influenced by Paul Klee. This fine bronze tray retains its original fitting on the back, permitting it to hang on a wall or sit on a tabletop.
