Artur Immanuel Loewental
Artur Immanuel Loewental (1879-1964) was a sculptor of rare talent who created medals of eminent people in Austria, Germany and Britain. Well known for his series of World War I German commemorative medals, his other subjects included Beethoven, Einstein and Kreisler.
Moving to Britain in 1934 – he was an Austrian Jew – his modelling skills with various materials continued to be in demand. The medals he sculpted of Kipling and Churchill achieved great acclaim.
For the last twenty years of his life he lived in or near Lincoln and large collections of his work are in either public or private hands in Lincolnshire today.
This study tells the story of a remarkable man and, for the first time, provides a detailed illustrated catalogue of the medals he sculpted.
