"Bronze Figure - Laughing Old Woman (1937) - Sign. Ernst Barlach"
The motif shows a rocking elderly woman full of joy who despite her frailty radiates an air of vitality and satisfaction. For the moment, she seems to be free from the burden and melancholy of the past. Laughing Old Woman is a late work of Barlach which is nonetheless crucial for his overall work and whose implementation of human emotionality is characterised by its individuality and multifacetedness.
Laughing Old Woman is only available in an exclusive, limited edition of 20 items, which are numbered individually and furnished with the adopted signature - E. Barlach - of the original piece.

Ernst Barlach was born 2 January 1870 in Wedel, Schleswig-Holstein. 68 years later, the famous sculptor died of a heart attack in Rostock. Some of his most famous pieces are: “The Book Reader” (1936), “The Reunion” (1926), “The Refugee” (1920), “The Wanderer in the Wind” (1934), “Laughing Old Woman” (1937) and “Freezing Old Woman” (1937).
His talent for plastic arts and for languages had already been recognised and fostered during his early childhood. Ernst Barlach studied at Hamburg’s School of Arts and Crafts until 1891, which was followed by his time at Dresden’s Academy of Arts, where he stayed until 1895 and became the master student of the famous sculptor Robert Diez. After returning to his home city in 1901, his creative career began a bit slowly in the beginning. After a trip to Russia in 1906, the impressions of Russian folk art began to have an impact on his works. One year before his death, the artist had to bear the labelling of his works as “degenerated art” by the Nazis. As a consequence, all of his works were banned from the public sphere. Nowadays, however, Barlach is said to be one of the most influential German sculptors in the history of art.
