Stephan Sinding, Volume of his Works, Signed by Sinding. Copy no. 5 of a 30-Copy Edition. Berlin, 1910?


Elegant volume with dozens of photographs of statues, reproductions and engravings, in a special numbered edition of 30 copies. Each one of these copies is signed by the artist. Fine-very fine condition. Aging stains.


Stephan Abel Sinding (1846 - 1922) was a Danish-Norwegian sculptor who sculpted in a realist style as well as a symbolist style. He studied at the Oslo National Academy of the Arts, where he studied drawing and modeling, later studying sculpture with the sculptor Albert Wolf in Berlin. From 1874–1875 he studied in Paris in a realist style, where he drew inspiration mainly from August Rodin and Paul Dubois.

He gained little recognition in Norway as he was considered too modern. Sinding moved to Copenhagen in 1883 where he gained recognition. He held an exhibition at the Paris World's Fair (1889) and served as a consulting professor. Sinding moved to Paris in 1910 where he lived until the day he died.
