CHILD IN AN APRON, Thomas Myrtek, bronze, early Twentieth century

Full-length representation of a child in a long apron. Viewed from the front, it descends a stone ridge.

The semicircular collar is lined with an airy flounce, and the excess cloth gathered at the back balances the steep slope.

Despite the raw, simplified matter, the artist managed to bring out the lightness of the child's image.
