"Modern Art Sculpture - Mother and Child (1907) - sign. Lehmbruck"
The bronze „Mother and Child“ was created after a design of the famous German sculptor Wilhelm Lehmbruck and is showing a undressed mother holding her little child in her arm. The so-called “Mother-and-Child-Motive”, that Lehmbruck realized with this sculpture, was part of his artwork since his first travel to Italy in 1905. The original of this sculpture was created by Lehmbruck in 1907 and was made of gypsum. Our recast was made of 100% finest bronze and is signed with “W. Lehmbruck”. Lehmbruck made first drawings of „Mother and Child“ in 1905. The sculpture „Mother and Child“ can be considered as a typical Lehmbruck sculpture, because both persons are pictured with estranged facial expressions. Furthermore the sculpture has a less detailed and also kind of vividly looking surface. This Modern Art sculpture is a real masterpiece, because of the great motive and because of the innovative depiction of the two humans.
As all of the bronze products in our shop, this exhibit is hand-cast in our own foundry and subject to our strict quality inspections throughout the entire process of fabrication. All of our sculptures are exclusively compounded with the help of lost-wax casting.

The German artist, sculptor and graphic designer Wilhelm Lehmbruck was born on January 4, 1881 in Meiderich, near Duisburg and died on March 25, 1919 in Berlin by committing suicide. Lehmbruck was a famous German graphic designer, who earned lot fame because of his sculptures he created as a sculptor. The sculptures of Lehmbruck, which characterized his artwork, were determined by the human body. Besides the sculptures of the Mother-and Child motive, Lehmbruck created several sculptures that express pain or other kinds of sorrow. Another characteristic of the sculptures of Lehmbruck is the anonymous depiction of humans. None of the sculptures of Lehmbruck have individual facial expressions or any other special facial features. His sculptures show a deep influence of Expressionism as well as Naturalism. Some of his best known artwork was once exhibited at the documenta I and the documenta III in Germany. Nowadays some of his work is exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art in New York and at the Lehmbruck-Museum in Duisburg, Germany. Famous sculptures of Lehmbruck are “Mother and Child” (1907), “Kneeling Woman” (1911) and “Sitting Boy” (1910).
