Bernhard Hoetger "La Pleureuse" Bronze Sculpture
"La Pleureuse," or "The Weeping," is a patinated bronze sculpture in the Art Nouveau style by German artist, Bernhard Hoetger. It depicts in gritty, nearly abstracted and softly defined detail the countenance of a weeping nude female figure, her head pressed resolutely into her hands. Although her face is obscured, the expressiveness of her posture conveys the strength of the emotion of the piece.
