Ernst Barlach "The Singing Man" c.1928
Ernst Barlach "The Singing Man" c.1928 (2 January 1870 – 24 October 1938) was a German expressionist sculptor, printmaker and writer. Although he was a supporter of the war in the years leading to World War I, his participation in the war made him change his position, and he is mostly known for his sculptures protesting against the war. This created many conflicts during the rise of the Nazi Party, when most of his works were confiscated as degenerate art. This piece has some damage, the head has been broken and re attached, and there are scratches in the base, the price reflects this damage.
