Bruno Zach

Bronze Erotic Dancer – Bruno Zach (6 May 1891 – 20 February 1945) was an Austrian sculptor of the Art Deco era. His works included a wide range of genre subjects, however he is most famous for his erotic sculptures of beautiful young women. The most famous and sought of these being ‘The Riding Crop’

Early Life

Zach emigrated to Austria as a young man and studied at the Vienna Academy under sculptors Hans Bitterlich (1860–1949) and Josef Müllner (1879–1968). His styles ranged from art deco, art nouveau, sporting, to orientalism. His works would be considered decorative, like Party Girl were it not for his success in modelling erotic sculpture.

Career

Zach became a prolific creator of sculptures featuring tall, athletic, dominating women in bronze and sometimes in bronze and ivory, the combination of the two in art casting sometimes being referred to as “chryselephantine”. He most often signed as “Zach”, “B. Zach” or “Bruno Zach”, however a number of his pieces were signed with his pseudonym of “Prof. Tuch”.  His erotica sculptures usually featured sexy, dreamy, scantily clad mistresses in stockings, garters, and high heels, even Party Girl has a subtle hidden eroticism.

Zach’s bronze sculptures were often patinated in mid-brown colours but were sometimes cold painted or polychromed. He used ivory, sparingly, and it was generally well carved. Zach’s work was produced by several foundries, including Argentor-Werke (Vienna), Broma Companie, S. Altmann & Company, and Franz Bergman.
