Item details


From 18 to 20 August 1820, Berlin sculptors Christian Daniel Rauch and Christian Friedrich Tieck had simultaneously (a tempo) modeled their portraits of the seventy-one-year-old Goethe in his Jena garden apartment. In contrast to the bust of Tieck, which was initially forgotten, the bust of smoke soon enjoyed lively interest and great esteem.

Even Goethe himself was very fond of Rauch's work. "I am very satisfied with Rauch's bust ... The treatment of the bust is really terrific and will therefore look great in every size." Today, the bust of smoke is considered the epitome of the late Goethe due to its closeness to life.

Store Information
Weimarer Klassiker
The cultural heritage of the city of Weimar in Thuringia is diverse: Goethe, Schiller, Liszt, the Duchess Anna Amalia, Nietzsche and many more have lived here and left their mark. For example, Weimar has more than 11 UNESCO World Heritage sites, which are maintained by the Klassik Stiftung Weimar and made accessible to the public.

The Klassik Shop Weimar is actually more than just one: We run all the museum shops for Klassik Stiftung Weimar, e.g. in the historic homes of Goethe and Schiller, in the Anna Amalia Library, and we also take care of the assortments in the museums of e.g. Liszt, Nietzsche and in the castles and parks of the city and its surroundings.

Not all products offered online can be found in every shop in Weimar. If you have questions about availability, we look forward to hearing from you by phone +49 (0)3643-545 880 (weekdays only).
