Detailed description

Sculpture "Reading Woman" (2019), bronze

A moment full of rest and relaxation: Leo Wirth's "Reading Woman".

The sculptor Leo Wirth draws his inspiration from people's everyday lives but always adds his interpretations to his sculptures. When shaping his sculptures, he recognisably focuses on the natural proportions of human beings and attaches great importance to a pictorial elaboration of the contours. Wirth's sculpture "Reading Woman" resembles the real beauty of the female body. It shows a young woman reading a book with concentration and thus symbolises rest and relaxation.

Fine bronze sculpture. Hand-cast using the Lost-Wax-Process and patinated by hand. Limited edition of 99 copies, numbered and signed. Size 11.5 x 30 x 10.7 cm (h/w/d) on a bronze base plate, size 0.4 x 25.8 x 10.7 cm (h/w/d). Weight 3.5 kg. ars mundi Exclusive Edition.

About Leo Wirth

"It's the details that count" is the motto of sculptor Leo Wirth, and in each of his works, it is obvious how seriously he means it.

Leo Wirth works figuratively. With great dedication to detail, his works (portraits of people, fountain sculptures, religious and mythological motifs such as St. Francis or the Roman fertility goddess Ceres) come alive.

The same applies to his depiction of everyday people, which he is particularly interested in; people that any of us might run into on the street. His sculptures deal with human strengths and weaknesses and the challenges of life. It is easy to recognise oneself in those small, often humorous everyday life scenes. In their skilful execution, the realistic but also expressive sculptures are inviting to contemplate and reflect.

Leo Wirth, born in 1956, graduated from the technical school for wood and stone sculpture in Elbigenalp/Tyrol in 1989 as the best graduate of his year. Afterwards, he decided to start his own business as a freelance sculptor. His success proved him right. Today his large sculptures can be found in public places in Dorum by the North Sea ("Deicharbeiter") to Isny in the Allgäu ("Neidhammelbrunnen").
