[15. June 2008] 300 Years Ferdinand Tietz

In Bamberg/Germany exists beside Friedrich Hegel, Carl Orff and E.T.A. Hoffman a famous scuplturer: Ferdinand Tietz. He became well known through his self-willed depiction from classical themes. His art can be described as a mixture bewteen art and design as he added a humorous point of view or better, a closer to life point of view to the serious art world. He simplified sculpture, but his method and workmanship weren't simple at all.

He was ignored from the so called 'higher' art after his death. Through the centuries his work was not treated very well as this modern mix was possibly not arty enough. It took nearly 300 years before his self selected hometown Bamberg recognized him again.
