Austrian Art Nouveau Bust of Ophelia by Josef Öfner

Austrian Art Nouveau patinated bronze bust of Ophelia by Josef Öfner. Like the sculpture of Maurice Bouval, Öfner depicts Ophelia as a sleeping woman adorned with flowers. The sculpture rests on a painted wood base. Signed,"J. Ofner". The Austrian sculptor Josef Öfner (born in Tannheim, Austria in 1868) studied under Auguste Kühne and Otto König and was active in Vienna around the turn-of-the-century. Like many of his peers, Öfner applied his skills to the decorative arts as well, producing gilt bronze vases and trays in addition to figural busts. Pictured in: "Dynamic Beauty: Sculpture of Art Nouveau Paris", by Macklowe Gallery, The Studley Press, 2011, p. 218.
