Rudolf Henn (1880-1955) Nackter Jungling mit Spiegel (Nude Ephebe with Mirror) ca. 1900

The Rudolf Henn bronze arrived from the German auction house this week. Unfortunately, there is some damage to the mirror frame which was not disclosed in the lot description. The moral of the story is, don't be a complete moron like me, ask for a complete condition report from the auction house before you blow big bucks on something. Fortunately, I have located a very competent art bronze master who, hopefully, if I can afford it, will reverse the damage and bring this beautiful work of art back up to its original condition. The base and figure itself is in pristine condition fortunately. Let's keep our fingers crossed. Enjoy.
