Johann Gottfried Schadow - Master of Sculpture

Like no other he had defined the classicism and was with his visionary work model and inspiration for whole generations of artists. Born on May 20, 1764 in Berlin, the son of a tailor made a career at the King's court, where he headed the sculpture workshop and was a director of the Academy of Arts in Berlin.

However, some of his works had a tough fate. His most famous work the Quadriga on the Brandenburg Gate was kidnapped by Napoleon in 1806. "The Prinzessinengruppe", a double portrait of the princesses Luise and Frederica, did not have any better luck. Friedrich Wilhelm III prohibited its installation with the justification that it is "too much Venus and too little Madonna ". It seemed that the statue of Frederick the Great was hit the hardest, which was lost after the 2nd World War and which was said to be broken during transportation. But all three works had a happy end. The four-horse chariot was brought back to Berlin in 1814, the Prinzessinnengruppe was publicly displayed again 90 years after their exile, and also the old Fritz was recently rediscovered in Szczecin, restored and could be seen in Berlin's Bode Museum in 2015.
