One of the most celebrated sculptors of the Expressionist movement in Germany, Barlach first began exploring ways to convey inner feeling through depictions of the human body around 1906. This singing man pulls his knee toward his body, while his closed eyes and open mouth suggest deep concentration. A staunch opponent of the Nazis, Barlach was declared a "degenerate artist"and forbidden to teach or exhibit in Germany.
