1937 Sculpture Arno Breker "Psyche"
Lot 41
Thus figures of a stereotypical German man or woman came to dominate sculpture as a central motif. Female figures were characterized by “grace and devotion,” and based on a concept of their traditional role as childbearer.

Arno Breker (1900-1980?) sculptor of this representative collection of female nudes, was born in Elberfeld and studied in Diisseldorf (1928-1932). After a stay in Paris, he settled in Berlin in 1933. He is unquestionably the most noted of the Third Reich era artists. His statues for the Olympic Stadium (Silver Medal in 1936) so pleased Hitler and Albert Speer, that Breker was showered with public commissions.
