Sculptor of post-war-Modernism, whose use of forms had a disposition to intense abstraction. He mainly created models for bronze-casting. In the young Federal Republic of Germany he represented the artist working on behalf of the church, who considered himself to be a renewer of Christian motifs and as such was supported by the institution. His oeuvre is in dialogue with historical surroundings which leads to striking contrasts.
