ARNO BREKER
(1900 - 1991) German sculptor, best known for his public works in Nazi Germany, which were endorsed by Nazis as the antithesis of so-called "degenerate art". More than 90% of his public work was destroyed by the Allies after the war. Rare war-date S.P. "With best wishes, Arno Breker", (in German), 11 1/2" x 16" b/w, an image of one of his Impressionistic bronzes, that of a young lady looking upwards, boldly signed at bottom. Fine condition. In April, 1944 German Minister of Armaments and Production Albert Speer issued a special edition of prints of Breker's works, of which only ten sets bore signed images. This plate is from one of those sets.
Estimate $ 200-300
