1956 Modernistic Boy Angel. Papier-mache. Dick Wicken. Milwaukee, Wi. Sculptor For Sale
Brown Haired, 1956 Modernistic Papier-Mache Caroling Boy Angel.
Dick Wicken embossed on back. He was a native of Shorewood, Wisconsin, and was a noted sculptor. He did work for the Miller Brewing Company, sculptors on the doors of Soldier's Field in Chicago, works for the Milwaukee Athletic Club, and did many other noted works. He was of Norweigan origin.
In his leisure time, he created Christmas pieces like this one. His first was a doll modeled after his daughter. Then he astonished the Sketch Club of Milwaukee by modeling a monk singing a Christmas carol while giving a talk and demonstration on sculpting. Thus, he continued on with creating such figures as you see here. He died suddenly in 1972. A great Milwaukee, Wisconsin artist.
