Born 1909 in Velden an der Vils, Germany

Felsenbrunnen, 1963

165 x 300 x 245 cm

Georg Brenninger, who studied architecture with Theodor Fischer at the Technical University of Munich and sculpture with Hermann Hahn at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich in the 1930s, is one of the leading representatives of the Munich school of sculpture. Many of his works are to be found in public spaces. Surely his most famous work is the sculptural ensemble in the gable of the Munich Nationaltheater.

Georg Brenninger developed his design language from the observation and study of nature. In his work "Felsenbrunnen", the theme is running water, whose counterpart in nature is a spring gushing forth from rock formations and flowing downward in a path dictated by the laws of nature. Abstract, composed of geometrically nested forms, the rock formation Brenninger presents here stands like a solitary piece in the spacious square, in direct proximity to the English Garden.

Location: Königinstrasse 38, Munich
