Clemens Pasch

I had never heard of this artist until I watched a Youtube video from the German TV show "Bares fuer Rares" (Cash for Rare Things). The US equivalent is "Antiques Roadshow".

Someone brought a Pasch sculpture into the TV studio for evaluation. The style is somewhat typical for the modernism of the 1950s-1960s. A realistic but simplified design with an almost two dimensional graphic approach. Pasch's work also includes humor in the way his human and animal sculpts are proportioned and staged.

I found this delightful work by him called Adam & Eve (The Apple) online.

Pasch lived from 1910 to 1985.
