Presented is an original bronze sculpture by Max Turner, circa 1981. Max Turner was born July 28, 1925 in Omaha, Nebraska and raised near Bingham Canyon, Utah. Turner knew that he wanted to see the world, and he ended up traveling quite a bit when he joined the U.S. Navy. Eventually, Turner settled in Los Angeles and his love of art and sculpture thrived. Turner was an instructor at the prestigious California Art Institute and an author of three books on drawing. Turner also owned and operated a silkscreen printing company for 32 years, and later opened his own bronze foundry where he created high-quality bronze sculptures across a spectrum of genres.
This bronze statue was hand finished and cast in the traditional Lost Wax Casting Process. The bronze holds intricate details and realistic qualities. It is mounted on a marble black base. The bronze has been signed and dated by Turner in 1981 in the Glendale California foundry he started.
Very good condition for age. Beautiful rich patina, mounted on marble base. Plaque on base reads “Eagle By Max Turner.” Incredibly detailed, Lost Wax method.
Dimensions: 13.5" H x 9.5" W x 9" D.
