Lot description
Beschaulichkeit. Vor 1924.
Bronze with black-green patina.
Braun 121. With monogram in ligature on sole of left foot as well as with the foundry mark "H. Noack Berlin". Height: 31.2 cm (12.2 in).
Hermann Braun was able to reconstruct the date "before 1924" on the basis of of the fact that a nephew of Fritz Klimsch acquired a copy of "Beschaulichkeit" in 1924 (cf. Hermann Braun, Fritz Klimsch. Eine Dokumentation, Cologne 1991, p. 359). [CH].
With the depiction of the apparently pausing motion on a triangular layout Klimsch creates a lyrical atmosphere void of any sentimentality.

PROVENANCE: Formerly private collection Lower Saxony.

LITERATURE: Hermann Braun, Fritz Klimsch. Werke, Hanover 1980, pp. 50 f., no. 17, with illu. (different copy).
