The Vexed Man

IMG_4365 2The Vexed Man // Franz Xaver Messerschmidt // Alabaster // After 1770

Poor man! Every time I look at him I can’t help but chuckle at his scrunched face. Each wrinkle and crease of his face is exquisitely defined in this sculpture. Known as The Vexed Man, the work captures the true emotion of this man. It was sculpted out of alabaster by artist Franz Xaver Messerschmidt.
