Customer Question
I have a print of...
I have a print of a sculptor kneeling at the base of a naked female he apparently made. The sculpted woman is in gray and another female is in the background.
the name at the bottom is Herbert Schmalz.
I obtained this in 1952 in Hamilton, Ontario. In searching online, any pictures shown for Herebert Schmalz are of a completely style.
Can you tell me anything?
Thank You, Joan

Joan,

Please add a picture of the work, the signature and of the back by using the Add Files feature on your screen. If you added pics with the initial inquiry, they did not get attached here. Schmalz was known for Victorian genre paintings, so I am curious to see what this piece looks like.
