Parian figure of Schiller
Schiller (1759 - 1805)
A creative and intellectual luminary from the late 18th Century, Johann Christoph Friedrich Schiller was a German poet, philosopher, physician, historian, and playwright.
He developed an enduring and productive relationship with the equally famous and influential Goethe in his later life leading to what historians call 'Weimar Classicism'.
Among his most famous works are The Robbers, Mary Stuart, William Tell, and his poem Ode to Joy which was the basis for Beethovens Ninth Symphony.
This stunning full figure piece is very impressive and depicts the great poet at a moment in anticipation of his imminent inspiration.
