Lot description
Iron cast
Cf. Schilling 214 a. One of about 3 iron casts. 6,3 x 21 x 6,5 cm (2,4 x 8,2 x 2,5 in)
All of Matarés' efforts to make a reclined cow involved various attempts in different materials. He spent a lot of time in nature to observe the animals and to find a cow that matched his perfectionism and strive for motion and form. [DB].

We are grateful to Dr. Sabine Maja Kufferath (author of the catalogue raisonné of sculpture), Düren, for her help in cataloguing this lot.
