Description

Anne; bronze with selected patina; edition of 10; 4 ft high; 3 tonnes with her plinth, about 400-500 pounds sculpture alone; Anne is a bronze interpretation of a nude girl, seated on her left leg, with her right leg bent and hanging below her seat. She is rendered realistically and holds both hands in her hair as if she is going to create an updo or just attempting to cool her neck. The original patina was a warm brown.

History

Anne is a Leo Mol creation and is made of bronze and is 4’ in height. Mol has devoted a great deal of time and energy to life size figures of young women. Anne was installed at the Odette Sculpture Park in 2001. Observe the prominent contours of Anne’s hair, flowing gently and communicating with the soft curves of her arms and body. Anne is comfortable and carefree in her surroundings all hallmark Mol’s work in this genre. Anne, a lovely, four foot bronze sculpture created by Leo Mol, was placed on a pedestal in the Detroit River this morning as the newest addition to the Odette Sculpture Park. The three- ton sculpture was delicately positioned by a 100-ton crane in the area off of Riverside Drive and Oak Avenue. Anne is located in Ecological Gardens at the foot of Crawford Ave. There are now 25 sculptures in the Odette Sculpture Park which opened in 1997. His vast work in the genre has been compared to that of Italian sculptor Giacomo Manzu, and often to the blithe, stylized figures of French Impressionist Pierre-Auguste Renoir. However, Mol’s sculptures of young women are un-mistakenly his own.
