Thematic album for the 130th birth jubilee of Josef Lorenzl

Joseph Lorenzl was an Austrian sculptor and ceramist of the Art Deco period, the same era as Ferdinand Preiss (1882-1943) and Demeter Chiparus (1886-1947).

Joseph Lorenzl created many bronze and chryselephantine sculptures, while making these sculptures he used both bronze and ivory. He became famous for his sculptures of graceful girls with elongated elegant forms, dancing with their eyes closed. His works were signed as “Enzl”, “Lor”, “R. Lor", "Renz" or "Renzl". The vast majority of the figurines were mounted on Brazilian green onyx stands.

The talented sculptor Lorenzl was also a gifted ceramist. He created works for the Goldsheider Porcelain and Majolica Factory, working in a studio on the premises of the enterprise. Similar with his chryselephantine pieces, his ceramic art works were in high demand and were the epitome of the Art Deco style. Lorenzl also worked for two other Viennese firms - Porzellanfabrik Hertwig & Co. and Keramos Porcelain.

The works of the Art Deco epoch sculptor are presented in the collection section “Sculptures”.
