An excellent early 20th Century cold painted Vienna Bronze study of a Whirling Dervish with his arms lifted high as he dances in a turning circular motion to achieve a trance like state. The bronze with fine naturalistic colour and good detail, signed with the Bergman ‘B’ in an amphora vase.

Franz Bergman - Austrian, 1861 - 1936 - is celebrated for his great attention to detail and wonderful vibrant colours, Franz Xavier Bergman is, arguably, the most famous of the Viennese cold-painted bronze artists, delighting in producing Oriental, Arab bronze and animal subjects, including Harem beauties, Arab tradesmen, Scribes and Arab Warrior and almost every animal subject that was known at the time.
