The Ernst Rietschel Prize for Sculpture
This prize, which has been in existence since 1991 and is awarded every two years, is assigned to artists who specialise in the field of sculpture. Until 2013 the prize was organised by the Ernst Rietschel Kulturring in Pulsnitz in memory of the sculptor Ernst Rietschel (1804–1861), who was born in this town. Thanks to the monument to Goethe and Schiller in Weimar or the Luther monument on the Neumarkt in Dresden, Rietschel is regarded as one of the most important German sculptors of the Late Neoclassical period, and his sculptures had a formative influence on the image of Germany as the land of poets and philosophers. Previous winners of this prize awarded in his memory include Johannes Wald (2013), Axel Anklam (2010), Emil Cimiotti (2006) and Werner Stötzer (1994). Through its association with the Albertinum, the prize has taken on a new direction based on an expanded concept of sculpture.
