Kissling, Richard, Swiss sculptor (1848-1919). Autograph signature.

[Postmark: Zurich, 21 March 1913].

Oblong 8vo (postcard). ½ page.


Inscribed to the German dermatologist Alwin Scharlau.

One of the most popular Swiss sculptors of his day, Kissling created monuments in a heroic classical style which was increasingly considered dated towards the end of his career. His best-known works include the Wilhelm Tell Monument in Altdorf and a portrait bust of the Swiss politician Alfred Escher in Zurich.

Tiny creases near corners; some small ink spots. Self-addressed by the collector on the reverse. The Mecklenburg physician Scharlau (b. 1888) assembled a collection of artists' autographs by personal application.
