Anton Josef Reiss (1835–1900): Leben und Werk by Helga Becker

By Helga Becker

Anton Josef Reiss, geboren 1835 in Düsseldorf, conflict einer der berühmtesten und produktivsten Bildhauer seiner Zeit. Seine Skulpturen fertigte er nicht nur für die katholische Kirche an – auch Adelsfamilien und sogar das Kaiserhaus zählten zu den Auftraggebern des begabten Künstlers. Reiss gehörte zum engen Kreis der Spätnazarener Ernst Deger, Franz Ittenbach, Karl und Andreas Müller. Der durchweg hohen Qualität seiner Bildwerke ist es zu verdanken, dass viele von ihnen auch die großen ikonoklastischen Bewegungen des 20. Jahrhunderts, die sich gegen die Kunst des Historismus und insbesondere gegen die Werke der Nazarener richteten, überdauerten. Helga Becker stellt Leben und Werk des bedeutenden Bildhauers nun erstmals mit zahlreichen Abbildungen einer breiten Öffentlichkeit vor.
