"Ernst Barlach is definitely no typical representative of European Modernism. On contrary. Like no other artist of his time did he resist to follow tendencies of the 'superficial world' and did not participate in contemporary debates about art and aesthetc fashions. He was a loner and up until today it is difficult to ascribe him to any art historic paradigms."
Heike Stockhaus, in: Ernst Barlach - Bildhauer der Moderne, p. 39
