Bolesław Biegas (1877 – 1954)

Bolesław Biegas. The Ride

Tym razem nie będę gdybał i wymądrzał się na temat rzadkości odlewu tej rzeźby Bolesława Biegasa bo wszystko jest w opisie. W innym przypadku zostałbym znowu przywołany do porządku przez pewną warszawską galerię. Wycena jest rzeczą umowna lecz rzadkośc tej rzeźby wykonanej wkrócej za życia artysty, na początku XX wieku, to fakt.
