Bronze sculpture details
Here Grabert is playing with the fairytale topos of the beautiful princess and the “ugly” frog. His princess is a young girl, however, who is carefully placing the frog she has just caught back into its wet element. The mouth of the barely palm-sized frog here serves as the water spout. Supplied with pump, without stone plinth.
Edition in bronze, cast using the lost wax technique, chased and patinated by hand.
Kurt Grabert's artistic training began at a very young age (he attended the technical college of graphics), but war and captivity interrupted his professional career for more than six years. Then after the war, he was able to resume his studies in sculpture at the academy in Stuttgart.
