Biographical Information

Terracotta figurines like these were modelled by the Sohn family: Franz Joseph, Anton, Theodor, and Ferdinand of Zizenhausen in Baden. Usually the patterns for their figurines were modelled after contemporary drawings by artists, including Hieronymus Hess who lived in Basle. The Zizenhauser terracottas were in high demand for a long time and sold at fairs all over Europe. About 800 different moulds existed, though only few of them depict Jewish scenes. Others represent various aspects of everyday life during the early 19th century.
