About the Item

Wooden reliefs, design Hermann Feuerhahn, execution E. Sund, Dr. Epstein Villa Berlin, ca. 1908 The German sculptor Hermann Feuerhahn attended the school of arts and crafts in Berlin and Hannover. It is considered that Christian Behrens was his most influential teacher. In 1905, Feuerhahn settled in Berlin and specialized in decorative sculpture. His distinctive style earned him several important commissions, including working on the famous Rheingold Restaurant and designing the decorative sculptures of the Hebbel Theater in Berlin. Other works include the Freiburg Municipal Theater, the Berlin Postscheckamt, and the Bremerhaven Municipal Theater. In the latter, he collaborated with the famous architect Oskar Kaufmann, who subsequently engaged him repeatedly as a sculptor on important commissions. These two wooden reliefs are from the music room of the villa of Dr. Johannes Georg Epstein, a writer, court official and publicist from Berlin. Feuerhahn designed the architectural sculptures throughout the room. His typical style, characterized by strict but fiery figures and allegories, was a perfect match for the reduced, formal rooms by Oskar Kaufmann. These two reliefs exemplify the elegant, austere style of Berlin-based sculptors from around 1910, and the quality of the pair of sculptures is breathtaking. Bib.: magazine „Deutsche Kunst und Dekoration“, 1911, p. 30; magazine „Die Kunstwelt“, 1911/1912, p. 35; marked on the reverse side "H.Feuerhahn" and "E.Sund". Fruit wood, carved.
