Object information „Catharina Elisabeth Goethe, Mutter des Dichters“
„Vom Vater hab ich die Statur / Des Lebens ernstes Führen / Vom Mütterchen die Frohnatur / Und Lust zu fabulieren“, schrieb Goethe in seinen „Zahmen Xenien“ über seine Eltern. Goethes Mutter wird als geistreich, warmherzig und witzig beschrieben. Der Künstler, Johann Peter Melchior, war in Frankfurt mit Goethe befreundet. Er schuf nicht nur das Porträt von Goethes Mutter, sondern auch Reliefbildnisse des Dichters und von Goethes Vater (Formnummern 5590 und 5591). Die Darstellung im Profil erinnert an die in jener Zeit populären Scherenschnitt-Silhouetten.

Notes on information

Historical Mould

The gypsum mould is the traditional impression technique of the 19th century. This artisan knowledge is maintained and passed on in the Gipsformerei. It holds thousands of gypsum moulds, some of which are almost 200 years old, and uses them for the appropriate casts.

Sizes

The sizes are usually the artwork without base. Please explicitly request a final measurement for matching in your request.

Images

For some objects you can only view images of the respective original artwork. Please note that these may to some extent differ from the state of the replicas. Many impressions are in a better condition than the originals.

Painting

The word “white” refers to gypsum with a white pigment layer. Painted replicas depict the material and the colourfulness of the original. Our artists strive to ensure the highest degree of analogy with the artwork. Slight differences from the photographies are unavoidable. Colour- and mould-related changes to the originals (e.g. through restoration or addition) cannot always be taken into account.

Material

The plaster casts are not suitable for installation outdoors or in rooms with increased humidity. As an alternative for the outdoor use, we recommend the conditionally weather-resistant material “polymer plaster”, about which we will be pleased to advise you.
