La Pensierosa

Emil Fuchs American

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 768

"La Pensierosa" presents a contemplative young woman in exaggerated contrapposto. The patina is matte green-black, a finish popular in the early twentieth century for its antique implications. The base was carved from sodalite and ornamented with silver swags, crossed bands, and a plaque.
