Rudolf Belling (1886–1972) was one of the most important German sculptors of classical modernism. The Nationalgalerie held the artist’s first museum exhibition in 1924 and now presents this pioneer of sculptural abstraction in the large-scale show Rudolf Belling. Sculptures and Architectures. The exhibition is the first comprehensive presentation of his oeuvre in 40 years and shows Belling’s importance for the avant-garde of the 20th century. The exhibition takes eleven main works from the 1920s as its point of departure. The total of around 80 exhibited items from the 1910s to the 1970s, including sculptures, drawings, models, films, photographs, and figures, illuminate the many facets of a sculptor who did not limit his work to the medium of sculpture alone.
