        KURT SCHMID-EHMEN (Torgau, Germany, 1901-Stamberg, Germany, 1968). "Bust of Mrs Schmid-Ehmen, 1934. Plaster. Exhibitions: "European sculpture of the 20th century", European Museum of Modern Art (MEAM), Barcelona, 2014. Size: 33 cm. This bust is notable for its simplicity of form, reminiscent of Egyptian art and the realism of funerary masks. Trained at the Leipzing and Munich Academy, among his first important works is the bust of the famous pianist Josep Pembauer, teacher of the concert pianist Hetty Haelssig, Schmid's future wife, whom he portrays here as Mrs Schmid-Ehmen. They met in the early 1920s and married in 1929, according to the catalogue of the exhibition held at the MEAM. Schmid-Ehmen's entry into the Nazi party took place in the 1930s, thanks to his friendship with the architect Paul Ludwing Troost, from whom he received his first commissions and who introduced him to Adolf Hitler. In fact, he was the creator of the imperial eagle, the emblem of the Nazi party. He was interested in sculpting tombs as well as the human face.

        Bronze with fine green patina. Very detailed miniature sculpture, the side of plinth with monogram “K.S-E”. Light-brown marble base, ca. 33.5 cm height x 26.5 cm width. Prof. Kurt Schmid-Ehmen, the “Eagle Maker”, is regarded to be the creator of the Reichs Eagle and the eagle emblem of the National Socialist Party. He studied at the Leipzig Academy with Adolf Lehnert and the Munich Academy, was a master student of Bernhard Bleeker and initially attracted attention with numerous busts, including one of the famous pianist Josef Pembaur, the teacher of the concert pianist Hetty Haelssig (later Schmid-Ehmen). His entry into the NSDAP in the early 1930s and his acquaintance with the architect Paul Ludwig Troost gave him his first orders and personal acquaintance with Adolf Hitler. He designed the memorial to the fallen of 9 November 1923 in the Feldherrnhalle, the eagles to the party buildings in Munich, on the Nazi Party Rally Grounds in Nuremberg, the eagle relief Smoking Room in the New Reichs Chancellery. Schmid-Ehmen created his largest bronze eagle, nine meters in height, for the German Pavilion at the 1937 World Exhibition in Paris and received the Grand Prix de la République Française for it. Since 1936 he was a member of the Presidential Council of the Reich Chamber of Fine Arts, and on January 30, 1937, Adolf Hitler appointed him professor. In 1939 Schmid-Ehmen was represented at the Great German Art Exhibition in the House of German Art in Munich with the bronze sculpture "Female Figure". USA-Lot: Shipping from the USA. Condition: I

        KURT SCHMID-EHMEN'S REFERENCE PHOTOS FOR A BUST OF ADOLF WAGNER

        Est: $80 - $100

        A fine archive of photographs and documents related to the work and family of notable Third Reich sculptor KURT SCHMID-EHMEN (1901-1968), who designed monumental 'reichsadler' eagle sculptures for the German Pavilion at the 1937 Paris Exhibition, the Reich Party Rally Grounds in Nuremberg and the 'Fedherrnhalle', and is credited with originating the design. The lot includes a group of seven approx. 6 1/2 x 8 in. photographs featuring bust images of Gauleiter and Deputy Prime Minister of Bavaria ADOLF WAGNER (1890-1944), showing his head from the back, sides and various diagonal views. The photographs are printed on period-correct Agfa-Brovira paper, and all are smeared with traces of grey clay, indicating that they were used by Schmid-Ehmen as artist's references during the sculpting of a bust of Wagner. The sculptor's finger and thumbprints are clearly visible in the clay on two of the prints. A second group of six b/w photo prints, ranging in size from 4 3/4 x 6 1/2 in. to 7 x 9 1/2 in., shows the resulting bust of Wagner as both the clay original and the final bronze copy, all again printed on period Agfa-Brovira paper. Additional period photos include a 12 x 15 1/2 in. print of Schmid-Ehmen's sculpture 'The Spear Carrier', which was later purchased by Adolf Hitler, unfortunately marred by a heavy horizontal crease; a 3 3/4 x 3 1/2 in. b/w snapshot showing the monumental 'Reichsadler' at the Nuremberg rally grounds under construction; two 4 1/2 x 3 1/2 in. snapshots showing Schmid-Ehman viewing two additional sculptures; a 3 1/4 x 4 1/2 in. snapshot showing Adolf Wagner with an unidentified woman; a 3 1/2 x 4 in. snapshot showing two unidentified women, likely Schmid-Ehmen's wife and mother; and a 6 1/2 x 7 1/2 in. b/w/ photo portrait presenting a bust view of Schmid-Ehmen, likely taken immediately postwar. The lot is rounded out by three documents related to Schmid-Ehmen and his family, includes: T.D.S., 1p. oblong 8vo., Munich, May 29, 1945, Hetty Schmid-Ehmen's 'Ausweis' issued by the American captors of the city one month following its fall. The document lists her place and date of birth, her residence, and her profession as a pianist. Her identification photo is affixed at top right, and the mayor of Munich signs at the conclusion in pencil. Shows a vertical fold at center with some splits, with notable chips to the edges, else very good. WITH: partly-printed D.S., 1p. oblong 12mo., Munich, July 6, 1945, a slip confirming that Kurt Schmid-Ehmen has registered himself with the police; and a war-date insurance card for a woman, on which Hetty Schmid-Ehmen is listed as the holder's employer. Several modern prints of photos showing Schmid-Ehmen and his work are also present. Overall, a fine grouping giving insight into the working process of one of the most notable sculptors of the Third Reich.

        KUNST IM DRITTEN REICH - Professor Kurt Schmid-Ehmen (1901 - 1968) - "Liebende" (tr. "Lovers") Half relief in plaster on a wooden base. Erotic depiction of two naked lovers embracing. Slightly damaged, restored in places. Height circa 107 cm. As an individual piece, this plaster relief has an interesting history. Despite being produced as early as 1942, the scarcity of materials meant that it could not be cast in bronze until 1958. In 2008, the bronze relief was sold for 9,000 euro as lot 3571 in the Hermann Historica Auction 56. Similar works created by Schmid-Ehmen during the 1920s/30s obviously influenced this relief, which is a direct testament to the mature, masterly style of the artist.

Included are a colour photograph and a colour slide showing the artist and his model in the studio, and five b/w negatives 6 x 6 cm referring to this relief. Mathilde Friederike Karoline Ludendorff (1877 - 1966), German teacher and physician, was mainly known for the fact that she was the second wife of Erich Ludendorff and for her engagement as a representative of the nationalistic movement. She held her own views about nationalistic religious conspiracy theories, according to which Jews, Jesuits and Freemasons were cooperating as supranational powers. After the war she founded the "Bund für Deutsche Gotterkenntnis" (alliance for German awareness of God or Ludendorff Movement). This portrait was made in 1963 on the occasion of the abrogation of the judgement against her as chief culprit.

The silvering probably later or renewed. Modelled on the seven-metre tall original at the Nazi party rally grounds. Prof. Kurt Schmid-Ehmen, the "eagle maker", is considered to be the creator of the Reich eagle and the emblem of the National-Socialist party. He studied at the art academies in Leipzig and Munich, and became Bernhard Bleeker's master student. He joined the NSDAP in the early 30s. His personal acquaintanceship with Adolf Hitler led to commissions such as the memorial in the Feldherrnhalle for those killed on 9 November 1923, the eagles at the NSDAP buildings in Munich and Nazi party rally grounds in Nuremberg, and the eagle relief for the smoking lounge in the New Reich Chancellery. He created his largest bronze eagle (nine metres in height) for the German pavilion at the Paris World Exposition in 1937, and received the Grand Prix of the République Fran‡aise for it. Cf. Hermann Historica, 53rd auction, lot 3073.

        Est: €4,000 - €8,000

        Modell des Adlers der Luitpoldarena am Reichsparteitagsgelände in Nürnberg Bronze mit dunkler Patina. Detaillierte Kleinskulptur. Höhe 26 cm. Auf Marmorsockel. Gesamthöhe 33,5 cm. Diese Kleinskulptur des im Original sieben Meter großen Adlers schuf Schmid-Ehmen vor 1945 nur einmal im Auftrag der Stadt Nürnberg als Geschenk für Reichsminister Hanns Kerrl. Nach dem Krieg fertigte er rund eine Handvoll dieser Modelladler. Vgl. Hermann Historica, 53. Auktion, Los 3073, ein weiterer Modelladler soll sich in Museumsbesitz befinden und einer in einer amerikanischen Privatsammlung. Prof. Kurt Schmid-Ehmen, der "Adlermacher", gilt als Schöpfer des Reichsadlers und NS-Hoheitszeichens. Er studiert an der Leipziger und Münchner Akademie und wird Meisterschüler Bernhard Bleekers. Durch seinen Eintritt in die NSDAP Anfang der 30er Jahre und die persönliche Bekanntschaft mit Adolf Hitler, erhält er Aufträge wie den für das Ehrenmal für die Gefallenen des 9. Novembers 1923 in der Feldherrnhalle oder die Adler an den Parteibauten in München, auf dem Reichsparteitagsgelände in Nürnberg oder das Adlerrelief für das Rauchzimmer in der Neuen Reichskanzlei. Den mit neun Metern Höhe größten Bronzeadler fertigt Schmid-Ehmen für den Deutschen Pavillon auf der Weltausstellung in Paris 1937 und erhält hierfür den Grand Prix der République Fran‡aise. A model of the eagle in the Luitpold Arena at the Nazis Party Rally Grounds in Nuremberg Bronze with dark patina. Detailed miniature sculpture. Height 26 cm. Marble base. Total height 33.5 cm. Schmid-Ehmen only made one of these small models of the original seven-meter tall eagle before 1945. It was commissioned by the city of Nuremberg as a gift to Reichsminister Hans Kerrl. After the war, he made about a handful of these model eagles. Prof. Kurt Schmid-Ehmen, the "Eagle-Maker", is considered to be the creator of the Reichs eagle and the eagle emblem of the National-Socialist Party. He studied at the art academies in Leipzig and Munich, and became Bernhard Bleeker's master student. He joined the NSDAP in the early 30s. His personal acquaintanceship with Adolf Hitler led to commisions such as the memorial in the Feldherrnhalle for those killed on 9 November 1923, the eagles at the NSDAP buildings in Munich and Nazi Party Rally Grounds in Nuremberg, and the relief eagle for the smoking lounge in the New Reichs Chancellery. He created his largest bronze eagle (nine meters in height) for the German pavilion at the Paris World Exposition in 1937, and received the Grand Prix of the République Fran‡aise for it. Cf. Hermann Historica, 53rd auction, lot 3073. Another model eagle is supposedly in a museum, and one in an American private collection.

        großer Bronze-Wandadler Auf dem linken Flügel Künstlersignatur "Schmid-Ehmen München". Dunkelbraun-grün patinierte Bronze, rückseitige Vorrichtungen zur Wandbefestigung. Höhe 53,5 cm, Breite 102 cm. Der Adler ähnelt sehr stark den Adlern über den Portalen der Neuen Reichskanzlei in Berlin. Prof. Kurt Schmid-Ehmen, der "Adlermacher", gilt als Schöpfer des Reichsadlers und NS-Hoheitszeichens. Er studiert an der Leipziger und Münchner Akademie, wird Meisterschüler Bernhard Bleekers und macht zunächst mit zahlreichen Büsten, darunter eine des berühmten Pianisten Josef Pembauer, dem Lehrer der Konzertpianistin Hetty Haelssig (spätere Schmid-Ehmen), auf sich aufmerksam. Sein Eintritt in die NSDAP Anfang der 30er Jahre und seine Bekanntschaft zu dem Architekten Paul Ludwig Troost verschaffen ihm erste Aufträge und die persönliche Bekanntschaft mit Adolf Hitler. So gestaltet er das Ehrenmal für die Gefallenen des 9. Novembers 1923 in der Feldherrnhalle oder die Adler an den Parteibauten in München, auf dem Reichsparteitagsgelände in Nürnberg oder das Adlerrelief für das Rauchzimmer in der Neuen Reichskanzlei. Den mit neun Metern Höhe größten Bronzeadler fertigt Schmid-Ehmen für den Deutschen Pavillon auf der Weltausstellung in Paris 1937 und erhält hierfür den Grand Prix der Republique Francaise.
