About the artist

Arthur Waagen (1833-1898), german school.
We don't know much about german sculptor Arthur Waagen. Born in Mémel, south Prussia, this talented artist was specialized in oriental figures and wildlife. Some of his pieces of work pop up on the art market from time to time. He exhibited two plaster works at the Salon : Pheasants in 1869 and A Vandal in 1887, and two bronze statuettes : Flowers Oracle and Back from the field.
