Cover for Johann Gottfried Schadow
Johann Gottfried Schadow
Embracing Forms
Johann Gottfried Schadow (1764–1850), known as the “father of the Berlin school of sculpture”, played a key role in the development of sculpture in Germany. He also made significant contributions to European classicism, a tendency that is inextricably linked with German sculpture. If you look at any overview of this period, you are sure to find the captivating and stunning Luise and Friederike, princesses of Prussia; and you’d be hard pressed to find a single report on the city of Berlin fails to include Schadow’s 1793 creation, the quadriga from the Brandenburg Gate. Since the last retrospective, much has been revealed about the work of Johann Gottfried Schadow. Not only that, but thanks in particular to the large-scale restoration project of the plaster original of the Princess Group, new discoveries have also been made about the sculptor’s workshop and his working methods. Making it high time for a new retrospective.
