I fall in love too easily
I fall in love too fast
I fall in love too ter-ri-bly hard
For love to ev-er last
(Words & Music by Sammy Cahn & Jule Styne -- sung, most memorably, for me, by Chet Baker)
And the sculpture is by my new discovery - Robert Metzges -- a German sculptor I discovered today while searching for someone else -- Walter Arnold -- a leading sculptor of the GDR
And of course he went to art school in the GDR -- where -- ironically -- the traditions of German sculpture survived until the end of the USSR.
.. and being born in 1954 -- he's even younger than me -- how exciting to find ---
--- sculptural feeling so much like that of Adolph Von Hildebrand (shown above)--
I'm not so enamored of his nudes -- but maybe it's just the photograph -- speaking of which -- why doesn't he have his own website -- or , at least, have his galleries show larger pictures ?
WHY ALL THESE STINGY LITTLE PICTURES ??? So people won't get to enjoy the pieces without buying them ??? ... it's so absurd.
But I do like these costumed figures (has someone else been looking at Tang terracotta?)
This piece is lifesize -- so I'm doubting the small photo gives any sense of it -- but I'm guessing that I'd like it.
And besides ---- I'm in love -- with Robert Metzges imaginary women.
