Absolutely AMAZING, rare opportunity to own a sculpture crafted by a wood carver/sculptor who epitomized the art of this influential era. Charles(Carl Oscar) Haag, Swedish-American sculptor and woodcarver, was born in Norrköping, Sweden on December 10, 1867, and died in Winnetka, Illinois, on September 18, 1933. His parents were Carl J. Wilhelm and Anna Charlotta (Persson) Haag. Haag started to work at the age of 12 as an apprentice watch-clock maker, later he attended. (Arts and Crafts School) and pursued studies in Germany, Vienna, Italy, Switzerland and Paris. Haag’s early artistic expressions were characterized by serious social themes and motifs such as the Forgotten, the monumental groups Emigrants, characterized his earlier artistic productions in clay and bronze and In the Union there is strength. Later on he devoted most of his energies to woodcarving, works characterized by imaginative and romantic symbols from nature, and quiet humor or slightly grotesque caricature. From the latter period stems wood sculptors such as The Spirits of the Forest, which received attention in various exhibitions in the U. And was exhibited in Norrköping in 1949. The sculpture measures 14 3/4″ H x 3 1/2″ W (base measurement) x 4 3/8 Deep (base measurement). This exquisite beauty shows wear, weathering, drying of wood, dings, patina… She is not perfect. But then again, she IS. She tells a whimsical story. All sales are final! Most of the items I sell are pre-owned and will show normal signs of use.
