Frau im Wind. 1931.
Bronze with brown patina.
Laur 504/2 von 2. Schult 402. Base with the name "E. Barlach" and the foundry mark "H. Noack Berlin" on the reverse. One of 32 unnumbered copies (from an edition of 35 copies). 52.5 x 13 x 10.5 cm (20.6 x 5.1 x 4.1 in).
Postumous cast made since 1947, after a plaster model from 1931. Cast H. Noack, Berlin. [AR].
• Conceived for the frieze "Die Gemeinschaft der Heiligen" (The Communion of Saints).
• With the hands pulled up to the upper body and wearing a long robe, Barlach created an empathic image of a woman in the wind with just a few gestures.
• Other copies are in the Kunsthalle Bremen, the Museum Kunstpalast in Düsseldorf and the Ernst Barlach Gesellschaft, Hamburg

PROVENANCE: Private collection Northern Germany.

Die von Barlach nur als Gipsmodell hinterlassene Figur war ursprünglich in einem größeren Zusammenhang als "Gemeinschaft der Heiligen" gedacht. Die schlanke, stehende Gewandfigur erinnert an Portalfiguren mittelalterlicher Dome. Eine Beschränkung auf den engen Raum, wohl dem gedachten Fries geschuldet, lässt das besondere Formempfinden Ernst Barlachs voll zur Geltung kommen. Das den Körper umhüllende faltenreiche Gewand prägt die Körperlichkeit der stehenden jungen Frau und konzentriert den Blick auf das Haupt, das als alleiniger Ausdrucksträger dient. [KD]
