RobiN: Sculpture "Merlin", Artificial Bronze Version

Merlin appears in the "Historia Regnum Britanniae", already in 1138 as an adviser of British kings who helps with the establishment of the Stonehenge. According to the legend he was a companion of the King Arthur. In course of time his image changes more and more until he turns into an hermit who lives in the solitude of the forest and develops his magic powers.

This nearly iconic face of merlin in robin's presentation, strictly enface, narrow brownish facial features with inward rather than outward eyes and an almost monastic robe show a merlin in the tradition of the wise. Only the top, decorated with stars hat identifies him as a magician.

Art bronze sculpture. Polymer art casting fine hand patinated and partially polished. Limited edition 199 pieces (+ 99 bronze), numbered and signed. Size 15 x 55 x 15 cm.

RobiNBorn in Munich in 1948, the artist felt no urge to study at an art school for years and took nude drawing his way to art rather into his own hands.This way led through a preoccupation with philosophical questions about free art. Within a short time he found his own style.

Bright colours and free form abstract inventions are included as well as sly references to the real world of objects. With great artistic skill, he translates his ideas and visions, whether in painting or sculpture. The breakthrough for Robin came very quickly. His works can be seen today in many galleries and museums around the world, including the Simon Wiesenthal Tolerance Centre Museum of the in Los Angeles, where he is represented as the first German non-Jewish faith.

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.

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.

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.
