Ernst Barlach (1870 – 1938), German expressionist sculptor, printmaker and writer.
Barlach became known for his magnificent wood and bronze sculptures, which were greatly influenced by realism and expressionism.

He once said about his work: "The outside and the inside are the same".
German artist Käthe Kollwitz (1867 – 1945), added to this in 1939: "His work is the same, inside and out. Shape and content correspond perfectly ..... that is why his work has such integrity".

"Nobody was less grounded than this artist, who, nevertheless, was able to give a voice to the silent creatures around him, giving shape to their unconscious feelings" Heinrich Mann, 1938.
