Barlach

3513 P-L. Discovered 1960 Oct. 17 by C. J. van Houten and I. van Houten-Groeneveld at Palomar.

Named for Ernst Barlach (1870-1938), German sculptor, graphic artist and poet. In his work he expressed human sorrow - but also the element of hope. Sometimes he could even express humor and gladness. His sculptures have mostly the form of a pyramid. During the Nazi era his work was regarded as 'entartete Kunst' and removed from museums and other public places. (M 26766)
