Literature: J. A. Schmoll genannt Eisenwerth. Wilhelm Loth. Bildwerke in Metall 1947 - 1972, Darmstadt 1976, No. 4; Uwe Haupenthal. The sculptural image of man in Wilhelm Loth. With a catalog raisonné of the sculptures from 1949 to 1956, Darmstadt 1989, no. 46; Kuno Schlichtenmaier / Olivia Schott, Werkverzeichnis der Plastiken, in: Wilhelm Loth. Torso of the Woman, Karlsruhe 2001, no. 55, fig. p. 137.

Wilhelm Loth's sculptures of his early work are already characterized by an emphasized simplification of form. The idea of grasping the human body as a hollow form comparable to vessels was derived from Toni Stadler, his teacher at the Städelschule in Frankfurt. Loth's turn to the archaic and the translation into a speaking plastic form, which at the same time corresponds to the surface of the material, finds a thoughtful and distinct formulation in the "Statuette II", which he created between 1951 and 1956.
