"Bronze figure - Hilarious Monopod (1934) - sign. Ernst Barlach"
The sculpture on the left is dominated by the drapery of the shell in which the old man is enveloped. The artful draping draws attention to itself. With the right hand, which can be imagined under the coat, the old man pulls his jacket seeming like a shield. With his left hand he leans on a stick. While he gains ground with his left leg, he advances slowly with the right leg which seems to be handicapped. The "Hilarious Monopod" (Vergnügtes Einbein) was carved in 1934 by Ernst Barlach. It based on a lithograph created in 1922. The sculpture bears the signature “E. Barlach”.

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.
