Product description

"Modern Art - Floating Godfather (1922) - Ernst Barlach"

Weight 19,7 kg

The motif of a floating figure became the leitmotif of Ernst Barlach’s sculptural work. With the "Floating Godfather" from 1922 Barlach revived the motif, which was already implemented in “The Floating Angel" from 1912. The long-bearded floating Godfather positioned with outstretched arms is placed on a solid base. He wears a wide, fluttering robe with an angular arrangement of the folds. The bronze sculpture is signed by E. Barlach.

Barlach’s bronze sculpture was produced with the lost wax method. This a complex process with many manual stages of work. All the products from our factory are subject to the strict quality regulations.
Ernst Barlach (1870-1938) was a famous sculptor as well as a writer. Already during his lifetime the equivalence of his talents caused admiration. Today he is primarily known for its wood and bronze sculptures. He created a rich oeuvre of prints, drawings and literature. In 1925 Barlach became an honorary member of the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich. More than 400 of his works were declared by the Nazis as "Degenerate Art" and removed from public collections. Some of his works were shown at the documenta posthumously (1955) and documenta III (1964) in Kassel.
