Antun Augustincic (Croatian, 1900-1979)
Standing Nude Boy
Signed "AUGUSTINCIC" in the bronze on the front of the base, stamped indistinctly "R...S" on the side of the base.
Bronze with gold patina, height 37 1/8 in. (94.3 cm).
Condition: Dust and dirt to interstices.
N.B. The sculpture is not currently plumbed as a fountain, although there is an example as a fountain installed on King Petar Svacic Square in Zagreb. Photographs may be viewed at http://www.zagrebacki.info/2012/04/djecak.html.
The work has extensive dust and dirt as previously noted. There are also several small areas of oxidation or corrosion to the surface, primarily to the torse. We do not have a scale on which we can weigh it, but it is very heavy. The Zagreb fountain was a gift of the artist in 1954.
