About this Item

German wood carver and potter turned stage star famed for his portrayal of Jesus in the Oberammergau Passion Play in 1900, 1910 and 1922; so broad was his fame that he even appeared on the front cover of "Time" magazine in 1922. Exceptional PS, 12" X 10" (image area 8" X 5½"), n.p., 1926. Very good. Minor surface soiling. Instead of the usual image of Lang as Jesus looking beatific, this striking oblong shot depicts a pensive Lang at a potter's wheel, and is captioned (in German) "Oberammergau: Anton Lang in His Ceramic Workshop." Lang signs boldly in a light area at the lower left of the image area, and in a somewhat darker area at the lower right adds "Christ / 1900-10-22. / 1926." Small signed photos of Lang are routine, but large and unusual poses such as this are quite scarce. Superb and unusual. Bookseller Inventory # 31037
