A Fine Patinated Bronze Figure of A Native American Scout With Rifle, by Carl Kauba.
Signed in the cast ‘Carl Kauba’.
The figure is cast as an American Native scout with a rifle, crawling on a rocky slope.
Austrian, Circa 1910.
Signed in the cast 'Carl Kauba'.
Carl Kauba (1865-1922) studied in Vienna under Carl Waschmann and Stefan Schwartz. Little is known about the life of this interesting sculptor who, in true Viennese style nearly always, but by no means exclusively, produced polychromatic bronzes, cold painted after casting and finishing.
Initially inspired by the romantic stories of the American West written by the German Carl May, his work is normally restricted to scenes from the Wild West rather than specific animals. His period casts are often by the Bergman Foundry.
