A Loss

I received word today from Vienna about one of the statues we located. The piece is a bust of piano virtuoso Alfred Grünfeld and sculpted by Florian Josephu-Drouot. The piece should have been located in the library/archive of the Gesellschaft der Musickfreunde (The Society of Music Friends in Vienna). The email stated that they were mistaken and the piece no longer exists. It was damaged/lost during World War II, and there are no photographs of the piece.

In short time I will begin returning to my work (researching and writing), and create a slide show of photos of the existing works to post here on this blog.
