Malcolm Moran bronze figures / vignette, California, 1972

This is a beautiful whimsical vignette of two running and playing children, with flowers and teddy bear, in bronze by Californian artist and sculptor Malcolm Moran, 1972.

A wonderful piece by the highly collectable Malcolm Moran a mid century designer turned bronze sculptor who lived and worked in Carmel, California, and exhibited at the White House amongst many other achievements.

A stunning design, the two children holding hands and running through flowers. Amazing details from the jade green gravel on the brass base, curls of metal for plant leaves with lovely enamelled flowers. One figure is floating in mid air, suspended by the holding hands and swinging a teddy bear. Topped with painted headwear and some daubs to the cheeks to suggest playing as Indians.

Would make a fantastic addition to any collection of Moran / American / Californian bronzes or sculptures, and would complement any retro, vintage, 1960’s, 70’s, mid century, modernist, minimalist or contemporary interior.

Marked to the base 1972 with the makers mark.

In excellent condition, with a lovely patina to the bronze.

Measures 17 x 7 x 14cm / 6.75 x 2.75 x 5.5in.
