About

Big statue entitled "Crouching" by Rosenthal. Based on the artist's signature: "F. Klimsch". This is model no. 1623 from 1937, repeated in later production. Fritz Klimsch (1870 - 1960) came from an artistic family. In the years 1886 - 1894 he studied at the Berlin Academy, from which he graduated with a state award. In 1899 he was among the co-founders of the Berlin Secession, in 1912 he became a member of the local Academy of Arts, in 1921 he obtained the title of professor and began lecturing at the College of Sculpting Arts in Charlottenburg. He received many awards and prestigious distinctions for his works. Klimsch's work was quite diverse, his works included biblical and mythological figures, monuments decorating the squares of Berlin and other German cities, medals, etc. The artist sculpted in marble, plaster, and cast bronze figures. His works can be found in many German museums. Klimsch's cooperation with Rosenthal began in 1935. He only created nudes with a characteristic 'vibrating' surface for this studio. The offered figure comes from a series of figures titled: "Crouching", "Kneeling", "Sitting" and "Lying". White biscuit with a slight sheen (brushed in places with glaze), which makes the whole cream color. Excellent Condition!
