Herr Storck's Hands

Description (Brief)
Sculptor Carol Storck (1854-1926) whose hands are shown in Ferris’s signed pencil drawing was from Bucharest, Romania. He worked in the United States for four years, before returning to Europe. On the verso, there is an ink sketch of a soldier who appears in Mariano Fortuny’s painting Court of Justice in the Alhambra. Gerome Ferris made two prints of this subject in reverse, one large and one small.
