Kniende - Studie zur Morgendämmerung. 1935. Bronze with brown patina. Cf. Hermann Braun, Fritz Klimsch, Eine Dokumentation, Cologne 1991, no. 168/169. With monogram in ligature in center at bottom on verso. 25 x 15 x 9.5 cm (9.8 x 5.9 x 3.7 in). Cast by H. Noack, Berlin. This bronze cast unmistakably is a preliminary design for the figure "Morgendämmerung", its model was rediscovered and cast in 1980. At the same time, the work is based on a bozzetto that Klimsch had executed in bronze during his lifetime. In addition, another version in shell limestone is also in existence. [DP].
