This was a great find. Beautiful Bronze Sculpture by British-Canadian Artist Mavis Ehlert (1922-2007) Ehlert attended St. Martin's School of Art and Chelsea School of Art in England, and moved to Ontario in 1952. Her works are held in both private and public collections. This piece is about 14 inches tall with a beautiful patina, is signed at the bottom back of the sculpture "Ehlert", as well as signed on the bottom of the base entitled "Today's Venus" signed Mavis Ehlert, and then marked "Unique" and initialed M.E.
I'm guessing that this is from the late 1960s or early 70s, and as it is marked "unique" was likely the only casting done. She was not known for doing editions. I'm very pleased to come across one of her works for my collection.
