Auction results from: Karl Hartung
1908 Hamburg - 1967 Berlin

Title: Scheibe (Zeichen).
Date: 1937/39.
Technique: Iron sculpture on original wooden base.
Measurement: 19.5 x 37 x 4cm.
Frame/Pedestal: Base (4.5 x 30 x 12cm, total height: 24cm).

The work presented here is one of two versions in iron from the 1950s. The other is in the possession of the estate. There are also other bronze castings (edition 6 + 1).

This work is a former gift from the artist to the Berlin collector Kurt Brandes. Brandes enabled the artist to carry out his first casting experiments in the iron foundry of the Werner von Siemens-Werke. This meditative motif was one of Karl Hartung's most exhibited works.

We thank Anna and Hanne Hartung, Karl Hartung estate, for their kind, scientific support.
