Hanns Theodor Flemming, Ewald Mataré, Munich 1955, p. 28, no. 27 figure Ewald Matarés shows in high relief a clear and curved shapes reduced stylized rooster, the contrasts of uneven and asymmetrically designed Background. Clarity and objectivity, Aesthetics and perfection are combined in one plant. Animal sculptures are one of Matarés trademark, where he deals exclusively with the domestic animal world. The subjective perception and lifelike picture is given here for the benefit of a perfected form of abstraction. In this respect, Matarés work is related to the organic abstraction of Hans Arps and Constantin Brancusi. Ewald Mataré, whose work of the national socialists was branded as "degenerate art", held after the second world war, with numerous commissioned works for public space (such as the bronze doors for the Cologne, and Salzburg Cathedral) and by his activity as a teacher at the düsseldorf art Academy, a great influence on a whole Generation of artists - not least his important students of Joseph Beuys, and Erwin Heerich.
