Hanns Lamers

Der Gekreuzigte

Wooden crucifix. Oil painting on gold-coloured ground 30.4 x 24.2 x 0.9 cm Monogrammed and dated 'H.L 1947' in brownish colour below the depiction. - Partly with minimal resp. small losses of colour in the joints and on the side edges.

This work, unusual for Lamers, is to be understood in the context of his works that originated immediately after the war, in which he symbolically dealt with the grief and horrors of war experiences, also using motifs of Christian themes.
