Many young artists joined to form the studio collective Klosterstraße between 1933 and 1945. Bound together by their opposition to the NS-regime, the house of studios offered them a retreat from reality. Those artists included Ludwig Kasper. His works reveal an existential balancing act: the need to realise his personal concept of art contends with a fear of attracting animosity due to even moderate modernism. At this time the French sculptor Aristide Maillol was an important role model for young artists. Kasper had got to know Maillol’s works during a period of study in Paris.
