Tremendous Terracotta

Titled "Totem" American, 1950s. This monumental piece of primitive art meets abstract expressionism is by the hand of Gerhard Kroll. Of German descent, Gerhard made his home in America graduating from the Layton School of Art in Milwaukee, the city he in which he still lives. Milwaukee is also home to his many public works and commissions for hospitals as well as the facade of two North Shore Bank buildings. This a mid-century Midwestern masterwork!
31" including the base
