Figurative Vessel - Meta Vaux Warrick Fuller
Stunning nude figurative sculpture vessel in painted plaster by American Harlem renaissance artist, Meta Vaux Warrick Fuller (1877-1968) considered to be the first black female sculptor of importance. At the front of the Harlem Renaissance, Warrick was known for being a poet, painter, and sculptor of the black American experience. At the turn of the 20th century, she had achieved a reputation as the first black sculptress and was a well-known sculptor in Paris before returning to the United States. Warrick was a protégée of Auguste Rodin, and has been described as one of the most imaginative Black artists of her generation. This piece is marked as #7 incised marking.
