Biography

German sculptor Hans Schwegerle studied in München at the Academy of Fine Arts where he became a professor in 1917. He mostly created medals, and is considered to have produced more than 600 of them. In 1938 he was arrested by the Gestapo for a short time because he had criticized the regime, but he created Hitler busts in 1941 and 1943, shown at the Great German Art Exhibitions. His earlier works were often created on behalf of the Church. Schwegerle later created famous busts of great German writers Thomas Mann and Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.
