Johann Baptist Lenz: Sculpture ‘Horse Couple’, artificial bronze

Johann Baptist Lenz (1922-2007) was as a sculptor and as the designer of chancels and churches, an artist with international fame. In many of his secular works - such as his sculpture ‘The Red Tape’ in front of the courthouse in Ahrweiler - he proved to be a winking humorist. And his ‘Horse Couple’ makes it clear that he was also a great animalier._x000D_

Priorities of the freelance artist were the design of churches and chapels as well as the design of fountains and memorials.

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.
