About this title

Synopsis:

From publisher's note inside front cover: "Well known internationally as a sculptor, the North German artist Ernst Barlach (1870-1938) is revealed in the present volume as an outstanding writer as well, being accepted already as such in German literary circles. Barlach's writings - early stories, later dramas and novels, diaries and letters - are presented alongside his drawings, woodcuts and lithographs, his first clay working models alongside the later completed sculpture in wood, bronze or other medium. No other single book on the multi-gifted artist reveals as fully and objectively the creative unity of spirit behind the interplay of his many forms of expression. The presentation is in chronological order and thematic context, sometimes with cross-references in the captions, to clarify the complex connections. The formative years of this artist with the 'thinking eye' are stressed just as fully as is the period of his maturity. With few exceptions, all major works are included - most writings perforce in excerpt; several of these appear here for the first time in book form. Discreet guidance is given in brief commentaries; the Introduction interweaves the artist's life and work. A short chronology of dates is appended, along with a list of works for English readers...."
