Lot 547: F MCCARTHY BRONZE SCULPTURE
05 November 2016
Online, PA, USALive Auction
F Mccarthy Bronze Sculpture :
A bronze sculpture of a Native American on horseback, holding up the skull of a bison. Signed “F. McCarthy” and copyrighted 1988. This is a later cast from a reusable mold.
McCarthy has handled the subjects with a deft sense of balance and fluidity. The upward movement of the warrior’s raised arms is well stabilized by the counter-curve of his horse’s back. The forms are rugged but not clumsy, conveying a sense of solidity that complements the figure’s dynamism. The fine details of the horse’s mane and tack display the sculptor’s familiarity and easy command of bronzework.
15 1/2"H X 7"W at base
