Copper is the oldest metal known to mankind and is used for crafts – after all, since 8000 B.C - a whole epoch of the Neolithic period is named after it.
This fascinating metal experienced an artistic peak in the 16th century with the copperplate engraving. Picasso appreciated this technique for its sharp lines and contributed to its revival today. Moreover, copper has firmly established itself in the branch of sculpture.
A plastic work of sculptural art made of wood, stone, ivory, bronze or other metals.
While sculptures from wood, ivory or stone are made directly from the block of material, in bronze casting a working model is prepared at first. Usually, it is made of clay or other easily mouldable materials.
The prime time of sculpture after the Greek and Roman antiquity was the Renaissance. Impressionism gave a new impulse to the sculptural arts. Contemporary artists such as Jorg Immendorf, Andora, and Markus Lupertz also enriched sculptures with outstanding works.
