Two Mothers, Frans Stracké, 1893

terracotta (clay material), h 90.0cm × w 33.0cm × d 33.0cm. More details

This sweet scene reflects increasing interest in the lives of fishermen. The statue shows a young woman holding her child, with her dog’s puppies gathered in her apron. Yet life is not a bed of roses for this barefoot fisherman’s wife. She has only two fish in her pouch, and the net that she drags behind her is empty.

On display in room 1.18-04
