Item description

Here for your delectation is the SPECTACULAR RARE----------------HUMMEL: AUTHORIZED SUPPLEMENT TO 1ST EDITION OF HUMMEL: THE COMPLETE COLLECTOR'S GUIDE AND ILLUSTRATED REFERENCE by Robert L. Miller. GORGEOUS!!!!!!!!!!! 200 PLUS NEW COLOR PHOTOGRAPHS, INCLUDING UNRELEASED AND NEVER-BEFORE-SEEN FIGURINES, PLATES AND OTHER ART OBJECTS BASED UPON THE WORK OF SISTER MARIA INNOCENTIA HUMMEL Hummel is a line of ceramic figurines based on the artistic style of German nun Maria Innocentia Hummel. Alongside Spain's Lladro, it is a world renowned series of products. The Hummel figurines that Goebel is most famous for producing are uniformly "cute." The first figurines were sold in 1935, and have since become a kitsch icon. The figurines are all based on the drawings and paintings of children by sister Hummel. Though much of the art was done in the 1930s, the newer figurines have adopted a more contemporary appearance. In addition to the figures of children (which are what most people think of as "Hummels"), there are also Hummel saints which bear no resemblance stylistically to the playful children figurines. Sister Hummel's works were discovered by Franz Goebel after a small publisher began printing her artwork as postcards. Goebel started production of the figurines under the authorization of the Convent of Siessen. Although she died in 1946 from tuberculosis, Goebel carries her legacy. Goebel announced on 2008-06-18 that the Hummel line will be discontinued. PLUS----there are FULL-COLOR photos on every page!!
