Wilhelm Lehmbruck: Sculpture "Mother with Child" (1907), version in artificial marble

The sculpture was made after Lehmbruck's first Italian tour and may be oriented with its Pietà posture to the old masters admired there.

Sculpture model after the original, Format 25,5 x 26 x 22 cm (W/H/D). Edition in white artificial marble. Polymer Ars Mundi museum replica, hand-cast and hand-patinated. Weight ca. 5.7 kg.
