The most famous sculptors who worked in the genre of table sculpture in the period between the two world wars were, of course, Demeter Chiparus (France) and Ferdinand Price (Germany). In Vienna, during this period, bronze and porcelain figurines in the Art Deco style were in great fashion.
Lorenzl began his career in the foundry of the Vienna Arsenal. And glorified his work in the Art Deco style. Most often, these are idealized sophisticated women: dancers, actresses, girls from high society. Bronze figures were usually painted in a cold way, gilding and silvering were less often used. Sometimes, along with his signature, the name “Krekho” appears on his products. Krekho was an artist and one of Lorenzl’s friends, who sometimes painted bronze figurines. These collaborations are popular with collectors.
In accordance with the established practice, all the author’s models of the sculptor had a signature, which was necessarily preserved in bronze castings. Lorenzl usually signed “Lorenzl”, but also used the abbreviations obtained as a result of dividing his surname into two parts “Lor” and “Renzl”.
