Bust of a Laughing Boy, c. 1917
Büste eines lachenden Knaben

The bust was cast from the initial clay model using a two-part negative plaster mould (lost mould). The surface displays no evidence of further working. No subsequent moulds were made from this plaster, meaning that it did not serve as a template for a bronze cast.
