Biography

Georg Kolbe (15 April 1877 – 20 November 1947) was the leading German figure scultpor of his generation, in a vigorous, modern, simplified classical style similar to Aristide Maillol of France.

Many of Kolbe's 1000 sculptures were destroyed by confiscation, bombing and melting for war purposes. His sculptures are in many museum collections in Europe, USA and Russia, among them the Museum of Modern Art, New York, and theModerna Museet, Stockholm.
