This is the second of these War-Den have in our stock. A large figure – 360mm in height, totally undamaged and marked under the base by porcelain manufacturer Rosenthal Germany, in addition it has the model number – 1581/1. The figure was issued in 1936.

This figure was designed by Fritz Klimsch and named “Die Hockende”.

Fritz Klimsch – 1870 to 1960, was a German sculpture much favoured during the Third Reich era of Germany. According to Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels Klimisch was the “most mature of our genius sculptors”. In September 1944 Goebbels added Klimisch to the Gottbegnadeten List, a list of prominent artists considered crucial to Nazi Culture.

At the Great German Art Exhibition 1937-44 at the Haus der Kunst Munich, Fritz Klimisch exhibited 18 works of art, all human statues or busts. Amongst the buyers were Hitler, Bormann, Hess and Ribbentrop.

This is a beautiful undamaged piece of art designed by one of the most important artists in Germany between 1933-45.
