Bronze sculpture details
Sense and sensibility, reason and feeling – Schröder’s muse not only inspires her poet, but also has a part in his work by guiding the poet’s eye to an art form that both try to fulfil.
Edition in bronze, cast using the lost wax technique, chased and patinated by hand.
The sculptural talent of the native-born Russian Krasnoturinsk Waldemar Schröder was already visible in his childhood days: he was only 10 years old when he received his first award for a 20 cm high woodcarving ("Der Bär als Kontrabassist"). Schröder won a school competition in trade arts and crafts. So it is not surprising that his artistic life was extremely straightforward.
