Between The Sensual and The Heroic: The Sculptures of Fritz Klimsch

Fritz Klimsch was one of those artists who became highly regarded during the Third Reich era. His sculptures were not as monumental as those created by either Josef Thorak or Arno Breker but it seems they have endured much longer in the German urban landscape after all these years that the ones created by the two latter artists. One can still find some of Klimsch’s sculptures today in public places, works such as Olympia (1937), Eva (1934), In Wind und Sonne (1936), Die Schauende (1937) and Nymphe am Wasser (c.1931) the last one can be found in the artist’s native Frankfurt. They have become part of what I call the ‘Invisible Germany’. How many people must have admired these works of art without even realizing they actually come from that time period in history. Regardless these statues still remain there, as silent witnesses of another era long gone.
