Johann Baptist Lenz: Sculpture ‘Eve on Apple’, version in cast stone

Lenz’s creative urge rests on the foundation of Christianity, and one of his key activities was the design of chancels, churches and chapels. Among these works there are numerous highly realistic portrayals of John the Baptist or the desperate devastated Peter. But even religious subjects by Lenz (1922-2007) from time to time received his characteristic humor. His ‘Eve on Apple’ gives to the art history long existing stereotypical motif a new original variation - the sculpture plays with a wink with the clichés of the biblical narrative._x000D_

Johann Baptist Lenz (1922-2007) studied sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich.

Priorities of the freelance artist were the design of churches and chapels as well as the design of fountains and memorials. In addition, he created a number of sculptures of animals, such as horses, cows, goats and owls. Johann Baptist Lenz had the special gift to open up new perspectives on supposedly well-known motifs.

Graphic or sculpture edition that was initiated by ars mundi and is available only at ars mundi or at distribution partner licensed by ars mundi.

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.
