The sculptor and designer Robert Ullmann created perfectly shaped porcelain figurines
Horses, deer or the Ullmann nude are among his masterpieces
Professor Robert Ullmann’s greatest ambition was to find a way to artistically “express human proximity, our deepest feelings through a harmonious alliance of shape and form”.
While working with Augarten, he created a wide range of figurines ranging from animal representations such as his magnificiently crafted “FIGHTING HORSES” and “FIGHTING STAGS” to human figurines such as his 1936 “SUSANNA IN THE BATH”, more commonly refered to as the “Ullmann Nude”. His complex figurines aptly showcase his mastery of porcelain and his fundamental comprehension of the medium’s limits and properties. More importantly, his imaginative detailed designs illustrate his creative genius.
