Plaster, mounted and signed on the side.
The torso is listed in the catalogue of works of the artist currently being processed by Andrea Müller-Fincker. After completing his studies at the University of Fine Arts in Berlin, Schliepstein initially worked as a freelance artist. From 1911, he worked for KPM and from 1929 exclusively for Rosenthal.
His initially naturalistic figures were followed by more and more expressionistic, expressive designs during the 1920s, to which this female nude can also be assigned. Numerous museums exhibit Schliepstein’s work, including the Bröhan Museum Berlin, the Porzellanikon in Selb and the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences in Sydney.
Provenance: From the property of the artist’s family.
