Jan Štursa’s ‘Puberty’ and ‘Before the Bath’

Jan Štursa was an academic (and later Cubist) Czech sculptor who helped usher his homeland into the modern artistic era, producing most of his work around the turn of the twentieth century.  Having served in WWI, Štursa was very much affected by his experiences with warfare, inspiring him to later create the Burial in the Carpathians monument, but the majority of his work focused on the female nude, including the adolescent female nude.
