Uffrecht & Co - Michelangelo - Ceramica

Uffrecht & Co - Michelangelo - Ceramica
Germania - 1880-1919

True to life image of Michelangelo (even with his broken nose, the result of a fight). It did fall once, though fortunately very well restored and invisible from the front. This is no. 2 from a series of 6 once made by Uffrecht.

Bought in a gallery in 2001.

Rudolf Uffrecht.
Rudolf Uffrecht was born in Althaldensleben, now Haldensleben. He was educated at the Academy of Arts, Berlin, his teacher was Bernhard Afinger, a close friend of Rudolfs father Jakob Uffrecht. Rudolf Uffrechts first works as a sculptor included clay portrait busts, and statuettes of fantasies. His father had founded a ceramics factory in Haldensleben which produced Rudolfs works commercially, among other wares. He received a first award for his ‘terre cotte’ at the Expositions of Stettin now Szczecin 1862, then at Leipzig 1809. A few years later he moved to Rome, where he worked as a sculptor and painter. He was prolific, creating statuettes of Romeo and Juliet; of major German composers such as Beethoven, Mozart, Mendelssohn, Haydn, and Bach; of Dante, Michelangelo, and Raphael; and portraits of the Prince of Prussia, the Prince Otto von Bismarck and general Moltke. Rudof Uffrecht died in Berlin.
