Almost Alive

Hyperrealistic Sculpture in Art
From the 1960s and 1970s onwards, different sculptors became involved with a mode of realism based on the physically lifelike appearance of the human body. By deploying traditional techniques of modelling, casting and painting in order to recreate human figures they follow different approaches towards a contemporary form of figural realism. The sculptures show how the way we see our bodies has been subject to constant change.

Redefining the Sublime
John Ruskin was an influential English art critic and social thinker of the Victorian era, who famously argued that the principal concern of the artist is “truth to nature.” For Ruskin, this truth entailed more than merely adept technical representation: artists should, in fact, depict the natural world as mankind experiences it, with all the sensations of both beauty and terror it elicits.

Cover for Herbert Beck

Herbert Beck

Miniatures
For more than thirty years the Tegernsee artist Herbert Beck (1920–2010) created numerous small watercolours which he himself called his miniatures. They arose from scraps of paper on which the painter, while working, wiped off his dripping paintbrush. Out of these random colour combinations Herbert Beck created small compositions in their own right, depicting atmospheric landscapes or expressive figures.
