Erich Schdmit-Kestner (1877-1941): Abschied von Alexander (Farewell to Alexander)

Auktionshaus Dr. Hull, Koln, DE has recently listed this beautiful bronze, Farewell to Alexander, in their current auction catalog by the famous German sculptor Erich Schdmit-Kestner (1877-1941). Schdmit-Kestner studied at the Art Academy in Berlin and the Dusseldorf Art Academy. He took many prizes for his monumental works and later taught sculpture. I love the nobility of this particular bronze. Enjoy.
