What does this mean?

This is a substantially sized bust Franz Liszt (1811-1886) that is an interpreted representation of the composer done in clay by an unlisted artist, Tarpay Auer Ferenc (b. 1902). The bust is done in the Italian Futurist style that emerged at the beginning of the 20th century, however this is a revival of the style and the bust was completed around 1976. This is in a museum currently. The estimate is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparables. Retail 'asking prices' can be higher and vary.
