To work on the expressive modelling of the human figure, we have used the busts made by Franz Xaver Messerchmidt as a starting point. Each student had to imagine the body and body gesture corresponding to the assigned bust. Belén Torres Olleta worked on the bust “Ein alter frölicher Lächler. Charakterkopf Nr. 48” in the Belvedere Museum in Vienna. She has clearly seen her character as as an uninhibited and irreverent old mans. The piece is 60cm high.
