Description

1931, bronze, 19.5 inches

After working with Carl Milles in Sweden during the summer of 1930,
Milles sent Fredericks to Munich, Germany to gain additional experience at two renowned schools of the day. It is likely that Fredericks encountered this man while he studied. It is unknown if this individual sat for Fredericks as he modeled the sculpture, or if Fredericks worked on this piece from memory.
