Busts by Oscar Mortens

My mother particularly cherished the bust of Ing since they became good friends in the 1950's. Gunnar Thelin was Oscar Mortens' partner at Mortens Studio in Chicago, and Ing (I believe Ingeborg was her proper name) was Gunnar's wife. The linked images show the signatures and dates on the back.

Smaller statuettes are included under the Figurines in this collection. I am not sure who the models were for these items, but the range of Oscar Mortens' talents is unquestionable.
