THE ZACHA BRONZES

Each of William Zacha's small bronze nudes is an insightful portrait of the model as well as an homage to the art and spirit of Classical Greece.

Zacha studied sculpture with Octavio Medallin and with Ruth Cravath, but his strong composition in the round and the honesty and vitality of his work have less in common with the work of those early mentors than with the bronzes of Rodin.

All William Zacha's bronze nudes are true hot cast bronze. The earliest figures are solid; later figures are hollow. None are cold cast.

The figures were modeled in wax in Zacha's studios in Mendocino and Rome, then cast in bronze using the lost wax method (cire perdu).

Most of the Zacha bronzes are one of a kind. Of the others, no more than three were cast of any one figure even in the rare instances when edition marks indicate a planned edition of six.

When two or three castings have been made of a figure, the resulting sculptures are not identical. Subtle differences in dimensions and pose and differences in William Zacha's signatures and other notations indicate the use of separate moulds and make each piece unique.

NOTES:

In individual descriptions, "left" and "right" refer to the figure's left or right, not the viewer's.

Due to the limitations of reproduction, the images here do not represent exact color. Most of the bronzes are darker than pictured. The patinas of the individual bronzes are a range of of browns and blacks. The text on each piece includes a description of the actual patina.
