Product description

"Bronze sculpture - Reading Monks (1932) - sign. Ernst Barlach"

Weight 10,8 kg

Ernst Barlach’s "Reading Monks" are the epitome of escape from the banal everyday life. The monks seek fulfillment in a spiritual and contemplative world. They are concentrated to an open book, probably the bible. In the literature Ernst Barlach is often explained as a "God-seeker". His work is a testimony of religious experience. Barlach deals with religious motifs which are mainly borrowed from Christianity. His interest is not primarily the Christian tradition, but rather in humans in general. The sculpture on the left was carved in 1932. The immense humanity of the characters is reflected in the physiognomy, the gestures and posture. The blocky closed form and geometric character give the monks certain abstractness. The exhibit is provided with the signature of the artist.

Exclusive limited edition of 20 copies, individually numbered and signed with the artist's name.


Like all of our bronze items also this sculpture is hands poured and satisfies strict quality guidelines. The sculpture is made in the lost wax technique. All of our products are made of 100 percent bronze.

Ernst Barlach (1870-1938) is considered as one of the most important sculptors of German Expressionism. He earned much recognition for its wooden sculptures and bronzes. Moreover, he has bequeathed a large varied repertoire of prints, drawings and literature. In 1925, the same year in which he designed the "Ascetic", Barlach became an honorary member of the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich. About 400 of his works were declared "Degenerate Art" by the Nazis and removed from public collections. Some of his works were presented posthumously at the documenta (1955) and documenta III (1964) in Kassel.
