"The Whisperer," Striking Art Deco Nude Black Male Sculptural Relief
Extremely fine and unique, this large gold-finished plaster bas relief sculpture of a kneeling Black male figure, whispering into the ear of an unseen companion, once graced the lobby of an Art Deco hotel in Florida. The sculptor captured the form of the male figure with strength and grace, and his kneeling, whispering pose is highly unusual. The sculpture has recently been mounted on a wood panel with a glowing walnut veneer; it is attached with screws using the original holes cast in the plaster for that purpose. Measures: 52 inches.
