Johann Baptist Lenz

1922-2007

The sculptor Johann Baptist Lenz, from the Eifel region, made a name for himself throughout Germany primarily with his design of monuments, altar rooms in churches, sculptures and fountains for public places. In addition to such large-scale works, he also created smaller representational as well as abstract sculptures. Sometimes realistic, sometimes humorous, but always sensitive and with a fine gift of observation, he devoted himself to his fellow human beings, religious representations and motifs from the animal world. He was a narrator of everyday life, his wife Maria Lenz said about him.
