Detailed description

Sculpture "Comedian Harmonists", hand-painted cast version

Teamwork at its best: The Comedian Harmonists are iconic and classical. Their wit and charm, virtuosity and perfection are still unsurpassed today. Loriot depicts the Comedian Harmonists as a symbol of friendship and harmony - human and musical. Their passion for music, sense of humour and the absolute will for perfection weave the bond that holds them together and makes a unity out of loudly different characters.

Loriot has set a monument to the legendary ensemble in his own way. With such accuracy, presence and esprit as only an artist who has mastered the profession of entertainment at the highest level can achieve. Music lovers, art lovers and all those whose concept of success is based on successful cooperation and fine-tuning, the Comedian Harmonists speak from the heart.

Exclusively at ars mundi, Loriot's Comedian Harmonists are available in two editions: made of fine bronze or art cast in Loriot's original colour scheme.

Edition made of Loriot's hand-painted cast. Limited edition 980 copies, numbered and signed. Size 45 x 21 x 13 cm (l x h x d). Weight approx. 9 kg.

Portrait of the artist Loriot

About Loriot

1923-2011, a german draughtsman, cartoonist, author, humourist, opera director

He won several german "golden" awards: two Golden Cameras, two Golden Records, the Golden Screen, the Golden Gramophone and the Golden Lion of Honour. Not to mention the Ernst Lubitsch and Adolph Grimme prizes, the Telestar or the Sonderbambi... He was awarded the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany for his special services.

Loriot is best known for his cartoons and sketches with the characters feature of bulbous noses. For example, two popular characters are Mr Müller-Lüdenscheid and Dr Klöbner, who - unawares - get into the same hotel bathtub and argue so delightful about whether the rubber duck should be allowed in the water or not... In his books, Loriot has dealt intensively with the passage of time. "Loriot's Diary - Zeitgeschehen von Meisterhand" or "Loriot's Heile Welt - Neue gesammelte Texte und Zeichnungen zu brennenden Fragen der Zeit" are just two out of many examples.

Vicco von Bülow, alias Loriot, was without a doubt the "grand seigneur" of German humour. His sketches are often known by heart by a lot of people and no matter the art he was creating - whether as a caricaturist, a humourist, an actor or director - he always achieved something special and memorable.

"Comedy, as I understand it, always deals with self-irony, otherwise something is missing. You have to include yourself." This is the secret to his success and noticeable in all his works. That‘s why his humour is never disparaging, never hurtful. Loriot was always extremely tender even with the characters in his most accurate parodies and precisely observed exposures of middle-class narrow-mindedness. Loriot’s humour, one could say, is not a sharp dagger for grim confrontations, but a fine scalpel that ultimately works towards healing the world with every cut.

The "grand seigneur" of German humour died in August 2011.
