Exhibition catalog of 32 works by Hieronymus Hess

Publication | Accession Number: 2016.184.687

Catalog for an anniversary exhibition of 32 works by Hieronymus Hess (1799-1850), in the Kunsthalle Basel. Hess was Swiss painter, caricaturist, and model maker, active in Naples and Germany, as well as Basel. From 1828-1934, Hess was known for his collaborations with Anton Sohn, who had a terracotta figurine workshop in Zizenhausen (Baden), Germany. Hess made models of works by Basel painter Johann Rudolf Brenner for Sohn's exceptionally detailed and elaborate tableaux. The subject matter ranged widely and included genre and satirical groups on popular, topical themes, and religious figurines. This portfolio is one of more than 900 items in the Katz Ehrenthal Collection of antisemitic visual materials.
