Waldheim 1877 - 1947 Berlin
Georg Kolbe was one of the most successful German sculptors of the early 20th century, and also one of the first who no longer worked on commission. In addition to a considerable number of portraits, Kolbe mainly concentrated on making nude sculptures. Influenced by Maillol and Rodin, he typically sculpted straightforward, harmonious individual figures, such as 'The Dancer' from 1910. While at first endeavouring to represent body and soul in unison, the artist later created more monumental sculptures.
