In the first decades of the 20th century, Axel Locher emerged as a prominent sculptor. His works for Royal Copenhagen and the Bing & Grøndahl porcelain factories are found in many Danish homes and his monumental statues of the Danish people tower over the parliament building Christiansborg Slot.
It is however Locher’s large series of theatrical statuettes in polychrome plaster, which must be regarded as his life’s work. Locher worked on the small portrait sculptures of his contemporary actors, dancers and opera singers for most of his adult life.
Caught in the act – Axel Locher’s theatrical statuettes is the biggest presentation of Locher’s work so far. Besides the theatrical statuettes, the exhibition shows a wide range of examples from Locher’s diverse body of work.
