DESCRIPTION

Abstract sculptor Erwin Fabian was born in Berlin, son of painter Max Fabian, and trained at the School of Art and Craft in Berlin, before arriving in Australia in 1940 during the second world war after being interned in London. He later returned to London, working as a designer and lecturer at the London School of printing before permanently basing himself in Melbourne in 1962. A retrospective of Fabian’s work was held at the Stadtmuseum in Berlin in 2000; and he continues to exhibit regular in Sydney and Melbourne. His work has been included in group exhibitions including the Australian Sculpture Triennial in 1981 and The Europeans at the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra in 1997. His work is held in the collections of the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra; the National Portrait Gallery, Canberra; the Australian War Museum, Canberra; several university and regional galleries and most state galleries. His work is represented internationally by the German Stadtmuseum, the Deutsches Historisches Museum and the Jewish Museum, in Berlin. His work was included in Gombrich’s seminal text, ‘Art and Illusion’ published in 1960.
