Peter Hohberger: Sculpture "Europa" (1992), Version in Cold Cast Bronze

Tender eroticism of classical modernity: Hohberger's sculpture Europe, which he created in 1992, is filled with open and disarming sensuality. Europe is a symbol of femininity, imperishable beauty of youth and also eternal incentive for men to act. It is the moment before the abduction: self-forgetful and completely relaxed, this female nude by Peter Hohberger delightes everyone who sees her. We remember what induced Zeus when he abducted Europe in the shape of a bull.

Cold cast bronze edition. Polymeric ars mundi museum replica cast by hand with bronze patina. Limited edition of 199 copies, numbered and signed. Format 50.5 x 18.5 cm.

Peter HohbergerBorn 1939, former actor, now a sculptor and painter.

Born in Silesia on November 12, 1939, sculptor Peter Hohberger dealt as a child with the drawing and modeling. After a successful career as an actor he has devoted himself for many years of painting and the visual arts. He sees himself consciously as a sculptor in the classical sense.

His aesthetic basic understanding is shaped by nature; it is the beauty of the human body itself that fascinated him and he reacted by modernism untouched in his files and portrait busts. His models, he does not deny: They are the masters of ancient Greece, Auguste Rodin and especially Arno Breker, who taught him personally. Of all he has learned, and not just in the accuracy with which he knows to represent the beauty of the female body.

Hohberger said: "art that enriches life and happy people survived any kind of so-called “Spirit of the time".

Bronze powder bound by a polymer. By special polishing and patination techniques the surface of the casting gets a look that corresponds to the bronze.

A plastic work of sculptural art made of wood, stone, ivory, bronze or other metals.

While sculptures from wood, ivory or stone are made directly from the block of material, for bronze casting a working model is prepared at first. Usually it is made of clay or other easily shaped materials.

The prime time of sculpture after the Roman antiquity was the Renaissance. Impressionism gave a new impulse to the sculptural arts. Also the contemporary artists, such as Jorg Immendorf, Andora, and Markus Lupertz enriched the sculpture with outstanding works.

Designation for an art object (sculpture, installation), which is produced according to the will of the artist in multiple copies in a limited and numbered edition.

Artist's multiple contributed to "democratization" of art as the work was made available and affordable for a wider audience.
