Ernst Barlach


Barlach, Ernst (1870–1938), German expressionist sculptor, graphic artist, and playwright whose figures in bronze and wood show Gothic and cubist influences. Barlach also produced many woodcuts and lithographs, some of them to illustrate his own writings. His war memorials and other works earned him fame in the 1920s, although he fell into disfavor under Hitler and his works were removed from museums.
