Biography

Silesian-born German artist Theodor von Gosen trained in München at the Art Academy and worked successfully since 1900 as a freelance artist. He created small and large sculptures and numerous medals. In 1905 van Gosen was appointed professor at the Breslau Art Academy, while from 1908-32 he headed the Künstlerbund Silesia, which he founded. Van Gosen then did freelance work in Wrocław until his death. His works were mainly monuments, statues and busts, and also medals. His son Mark (1913-2004) also became an artist, studied at the München Art Academy, and worked as a glass artist and muralist at Chiemsee. It is still controversial whether Theodor von Gosen really entered a plaque in the 1928 Amsterdam Art Competitions.
