Theodor Georgii (sculptor)
Theodor Georgii came from a Swabian family. He studied in 1902 and 1903 at the Academy of Fine Arts in Stuttgart with Robert Poetzelberger , in 1904 at the Dillens Art School in Brussels and in 1905 at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich with Adolf von Hildebrand , whose daughter Irene he married in 1907. He became a member of the Munich Secession . In 1931 the artist and writer Alexander Heilmeyer wrote about Georgii:
“From the later students of Hildebrand, Theodor Georgii developed a special mastery in stone carving, just as Hildebrand originally demanded it. Georgii also came to the Hildebrand Art Circle from Paris and Belgium and began with works carved out of stone, which Hildebrand accepted with great approval. "
In 1930 Georgii received a call to the Kunstgewerbeschule in Vienna . After the war he returned to Munich in 1946 and taught at the Academy of Fine Arts. In 1953 he was elected one of its honorary members. His most important students include Toni Stadler (1888–1982) and Martin Mayer (* 1931).
