Johann Gottfried Schadow - Embracing Forms

Published on November 10, 2022

Johann Gottfried Schadow was seen as the founder of the Berlin School of sculpture. Schadow came to epitomize German Neoclassicism, with his life-size double statue of Princesses Louise and Frederica of Prussia, known as the “Princess Group”, being emblematic of the movement. As the first sculpture depicting two female historical figures, this work wrote art history, and continues to be a highlight for visitors to Berlin from right around the world. The first retrospective in some 30 years, this exhibition presents more than 150 of Schadow’s major sculptural, graphic and art-theoretical works, arranged into 11 thematic sections.

The exhibition runs from October 21, 2022 - February 19, 2023 at the Alte Nationalgalerie, 1-3 Bodestrasse, Berlin 10178, Germany.
