1937 Sculpture Arno Breker Neckline of “Psyche”
Lot 42
Cultural ideologue Alfred Rosenberg saw in Breker’s monumental figures a representation of the “force and willpower” (Wucht and Willenhaftigkeit) of the age. Breker sculpted the heroic statues “Party and “Army” for the new Reich Chancellery, where they flanked the main entrance. He became a professor at the Academy of Fine Arts in Berlin in 1938. In 1942 the Vichy government arranged a large exhibition of Breker’s works in Paris, on the occasion of which the elderly sculptor Aristide Maillol praised him as the “German Michelangelo.” Postwar critics not only criticized Breker for his services to a criminal regime, but also found fault with the “empty pathos.”
