Luxury Design, Past & Present
Besides animal depictions, the nude was a constant motif of the Hagenauer Werkstätte Wien. Both Karl and Franz Hagenauer created female figures conveying an imposing aura and timeless power, using various materials and ever-changing formal languages.
This elegant female torso in maple wood is reflected in its polished brass base, which gives it a feeling of greatness. The head is turned slightly backwards over the shoulder, symbolizing a certain devotion, which is yet another characteristic style element of the Hagenauer brothers.
In addition, the finely elaborated facial features, including a delicate mouth, elegant nose and puristic ears, are further evidence of the outstanding craftsmanship of the Hagenauer workshop.
