Another look at a work from the Oppenheimer Villa. This one is by Adolf Brutt who is apparently one of the founders of the Weimar school of sculpture. He was born in Northern Germany, but studied and lived for a good bit of his life in Berlin. I also found this piece very moving. It's called Gerettet or Saved. 

I think it's worth a close-up look at the fisher's face. It's a powerful work of art. Photo taken in April 2012.


  1. A different interpretation of the 'Pietà'.

  2. This is such a sad sculpture. Yes, I know that it is called "Saved," but the image calls that into question. I can just imagine the heartbreak.

  3. Halcyon, this is indeed extremely moving and powerful.


Thanks for visiting. I love hearing from you.
