"Wilhelm Lehmbruck belongs to the pioneers of the modern sculpture, which reduces the human body shape to the fundamental traits. This is especially well manifested, in my opinion, in the "Woman with Lowered Head" from 1910. The sculptor was closely connected with the Art Hall Bremen, and especially with the director Siegfried Salzmann, which ran the Lehmbruck Museum in Duisburg." (Prof. Dr. Christoph Grunenberg, Director of the Art Hall Bremen)
