About this item

This is a striking bronze Art Deco style dominatrix lady bronze on a marble base, after Bruno Zach, from the last quarter of the 20th century.

This bronze statuette is of a dominatrix carrying a cane, which she clutches with both hands, while looking inquisitively to her side.

This delightful bronze is a recast of the original by Bruno Zach. He was a German Art Deco sculptor known for his wild depictions of women.

This high quality hot cast solid bronze was produced using the traditional "lost wax" process, otherwise known as the "cire perdue" method.

uno Zach  1891-1945  
He was born in the town of Schitomir, Ukraine and  studied in Vienna at the Vienna Academy under Hans Bitterlich and Josef Mullner.
Bruno Zach worked for various foundries in Vienna - and also worked under the name of "Tuch". The subjects of Zach's bronze works include western, orientalist, sporting, animalier, art deco and erotic subjects. Sculptures were also cast and carved by him in Vienna.
Bruno Zach worked between the years of 1918 and 1935, revelling in the spirit of Art Deco. Although he executed some graceful moving statues, this Berlin based sculptor devoted most of his energy and talents to the exotic. Zach loved to render his world of exotic nightlife in his work, especially the prostitutes with whom he loved to socialize. In fact, one prostitute with whom Zach was in love refused to marry him, leading to the work Hearts.

Lost Wax Method
sometimes called by the French name of cire perdue or the Latin, cera perduta is the process by which a bronze or brass is cast from an artists sculpture.In industrial uses, the modern process is called investment casting. An ancient practice, the process today varies from foundry to foundry, but the steps which are usually used in casting small bronze sculptures in a modern bronze foundry are generally quite standardised.
