Heinrich Carl Baucke (1875-1915): The Victorious Boxer

Heinrich Carl Baucke (1875-1915) was a well known German artist who specialized in a Neo-Baroque style. This particular bronze is currently listed on a German Auction House Site and is titled "The Victorious Boxer." I have also seen it listed as "Der Sieger" (The Winner). It really is a beautiful celebration of the male youth in bronze.


Here are a few more examples of the above bronze and a few additional works by Baucke:
