DESCRIPTION:  The circa 1900 bronze and polychrome sculpture of the cardiologist or here with an Hungarian plaque that translates to the "Healthy Heart" - A lascivious cardiologist listens to his own heart through a stethoscope as his ear is pressed firmly to his beautiful patients naked back!

The son of an Austrian shoemaker, Carl Kauba was born on August 13, 1865. He began his studies at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna with professor Laufenberg, Carl Waschmann and Stefan Schwartz and in 1886 he spent two years in Paris. His western polychrome bronze subjects are highly sought after, although it is highly debatable that he ever visited America. His sculptures appear to have been copied from period photos. (Certain anomalies such as shod horses ridden by American Indians would suggest this.) Carl Kauba is also noted for his "Naughties"- a collection of mechanical push button sculptures or lascivious and humorous characters. Kauba also worked under the name of T.Curts, and Karl Thenn (foundry) -- quite possibly for copyright reasons in Vienna, as he worked for more than one foundry, thus it is quite normal to find identical sculptures with any of these signatures.
