Athlete, 1918, by Antoni Alsina i Amils.

Bronze sculpture of a naked young man with the laurels of victory on his head, which featured in the Exposició d’Art in Barcelona in 1918. Alsina Amils showed the same work in an exhibition by artists from Tàrrega shortly afterwards.

The athlete is a superb example of the author’s classical style, in which his nudes are sensual, slender and graceful.
