FREDDA BRILLANT BRONZE SCULPTURE OF MRS. NITA MASSINE 1/1 ORIGINAL VG CONDITION
FREDDA BRILLANT BRONZE SCULPTURE OF MRS. NITA MASSINE 1/1 ORIGINAL VG CONDITION








    FROM THE ARTIST ESTATE IN MOLINE, IL , CAMES THIS ORGINAL ONE OF A KIND BRONZE SCULPTURE OF MRS. NITA MASSINE DONE BY MRS FREDDA BRILLANT(AM 20TH CENT ARTIST & ACTRESS). MRS FREDDA BRILLANT DID ONLY COMMISSION WORK & MOST OF HER BRONZES ARE STILL IN PRIVATE HANDS. THIS BRONZE & A FEW OTHER SCULPTORS THAT I HAVE CAME FROM THE ARTIST ESTATE. MRS. BRILLANT DID THE WORK OF THIS LADY MRS. NITA MASSINE AS A DEBT TO PAY OFF HER OCELOT COAT REFURBISH DONE BY MRS. MASSINES HUSBAND SYDNEY MASSINE IN LONDON, ENGLAND IN THE 1950's. ACCORDING TO THE BOOK WRITTEN ABOUT FREDDA BRILLANT(FREDDA BRILLANT BIOGRAPHIES IN BRONZE BY STEIMATZKY SHAPOLSKY 1986) P.108 MRS BRILLANT DESCRIBES THE SUBJECT MRS MASSINE. NITA HAS A MADONNA-LIKE EXPRESSION OF SUFFERRING COMING FROM THE DEPTHS OF HER SOUL. BUT BECAUSE OF THIS SORROW SHE CARRIED WITH HER, SHE LOOKED SOMEWHAT OLDER. NITA HAS THOSE QUALITIES OF PATIENCE & ENDURANCE WHICH CHARACTERIZE SAINTS. HER PORTRAIT IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE SCULPTURES. MY CAST STANDS IN A PROMINENT PLACE IN MY HOME & WHENEVER I PASS IT, I CANNOT HELP TOUCHING THE CHEEK GENTLY WITH MY FINGERS AS IF WANTING TO CONSOLE HER."


I THINK I COULD NOT GIVE A BETTER DESCRIPTION OF THIS BRONZE THAN THAT. THE BRONZE STANDS OVERALL HT: 19in., L:12in., W: 11in., WEIGHT @ 50 LBS. THE BRONZE IS SIGNED IN THE LRC & DATED 1960. VG COND. THE PURCHASER OF THIS BRONZE WILL GET THE SAME REFERNCE BOOK I QUOTED ABOUT HER & HER SUBJECTS IN BRONZE. ANY QUESTIONS, LET ME KNOW. THANK YOU.
