Head of a Man on a Base, c. 1946
Tête d'homme sur socle

ʻTête d’homme sur socleʼ was worked directly in plaster. On the left side of the base are the remains of an engraved inscription that is no longer legible.

No subsequent moulds were made from this plaster, meaning that it did not serve as a template for a bronze cast.
