Wilhelm Lehmbruck, German, 1881 - 1919 (Artist)

ca. 1913
cast cement
Overall: 27 × 5 1/2 × 10 in. (68.58 × 13.97 × 25.4 cm)
Lehmbruck’s figurative sculptures often reveal a classical attitude. From 1910 until 1914. he lived in Paris, studying the work of French sculptors Auguste Rodin and Aristide Maillol. Their influence is apparent in this serene cast-cement torso from 1913, which shows little of the attenuation and other distortions visible in his later work.
