Peasant Girl

will be on auction at

Bonhams, London

2pm Wed 20th March

Unlike Herman Wald’s individual portraits, this finely polished marble head represents a type. The young girl with the hair style of a Russian peasant appears as a tangible memory of Eastern Europe. Her smiling lips and strong features exude serenity and a quiet spirituality, enhanced by the excellent carving technique in which Herman Wald utilized the spots and lines of the marble to enliven her features.

This is one of only a handful of works created in marble by the artist.

Height: 47cm:      Sold for £5,000
