"Modern Bronze Figure - Freezing Crone (1937) - Ernst Barlach"
The “Freezing Crone” by Ernst Barlach is one of the most memorable testimonies of isolation, the sculptor felt both artistically and socially. The sculpture was created in 1937, one year before his death. For the German sculptor, writer and artist Ernst Barlach the year 1937 was marked by uncertainty and existential threat. The Nazis seized 371 of his works and imposed him with an exhibition ban. The sculpture group “Christ and Thomas” were shown at the exhibition “Degenerate Art”. Works from this period, including the “Freezing Crone” reflects its situation within society, the sentiment of rejection, the experienced hatred and contempt. Barlach’s beggar figure bears the original signature.
