Putti couple with fruit bowl - Vienna - Theodor Friedl - around 1870




Christian Eduard Franke-Landwers Christoph Freiherr von Seckendorff


Inscribed on the base “fecit T. Friedl” and “Gegossen J.C. Hennick”.

The large-format cast made of gold-plated metal shows two fully plastic, lively putti attentively carrying a bowl of fruit. In the spirit of baroque sculpture, that moment of movement is captured here with virtuosity in which the greatest tension lies - both physically and mentally. In the watchful eyes of the putti, the greatest concentration is on balancing the sweet but heavy harvest on the tray.

Friedl (Vienna 1842-1900 Kirchau / Lower Austria) studied at the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts and created numerous sculptures. His main works are the marble steed taming groups on Maria-Theresien-Platz in Vienna, other sculptures and architectural sculptures can be found in Hamburg, Budapest, Augsburg and Prague.
