By the internationally known artist, Bogdan Grom (Trieste Italy 1918-), this fine little sculpture nicely depicts an owl, in simple planes and modernist form. Solid bronze, it measures just over 2" tall, and is signed on the back. The surface is mottled, with evidence of a silvery finish, with etched lines on the wings and lightly textured surface on the body. May have been mounted on a base, as there is a hole in the bottom, likely for attachment. Bogdan Grom came to the US in 1957, after studying at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome, Venice, and Munich, and gaining recognition for his painting, graphics, sculpture, and architectural design. His work continues, and his art is found in museum collections around the world, and he has been recognized in many one-man shows, and has been commissioned to create both public and private works.
