About

Bronze, brown patinated by Ernst Barlach ( 1870 - 1938 ) Inscribed and numbered on the plinth: E. Barlach 8/8. Stamped with the foundry mark: H.Noack.Berlin Provenance: Alfred Flechtheim. Dimensions: Width: 23.23 in ( 59 cm ), Height: 17.72 in ( 45 cm ) The Avenger is one of Barlach's most celebrated sculptures and has become regarded as one of the most compelling symbols of the German Expressionist Movement. The dynamic sculpture is a symbol of the war and the dissatisfaction with the political, economical and social conditions at that time. The powerful scene of a warrior striding forward and holding an enormous sword over his back accentuates the expressive language and the aggressivity of Barlach’s work.
