Biography

German Richard Scheibe studied painting in Dresden and München, but then turned to sculpture. In 1914 he joined the Berlin Secession. From 1925-33 he was a professor at the Städel Art Institute in Frankfurt am Main. In 1934 Scheibe moved to the Academy of Fine Arts in Berlin. In the Nazi era, he received numerous awards and was exempted from military service.

In 1944 Scheibe was awarded the Goethe Medal for Art and Science, and was inducted by Adolf Hitler into the “Gottbegnadeten List” (List of Divinely Gifted) of the most important visual artists. In 1953 he created the memorial for the victims of 20 July 1944 in the Bendler Block in Berlin in honor of the failed Hitler assassination. Scheibe mainly produced figurative statues and sculptures.
