Hemingway was not only active as writer, but also as reporter and war correspondent, at the same time adventurer, deep-sea fisherman and game hunter, which is reflected in his works. Hemingway gave expression to the weariness of the Lost Generation. Following the example of Mark Twain and Gertrude Stein, he developed a "modern classicism", the trademark of which is a particular barreness of the style.
Even though Hemingway repeatedly suffered from severe depression and finally committed suicide in 1961, we decided to base his bust on photos showing him in more powerful moments. This way, we find his creative power and his extraordinary abilities as a writer better represented instead of reducing him to the tragic phases of his life.
We even gave him a slight smile. His pronounced laugh lines were a trademark of his charismatic face, despite all objections. The age at which we modeled him corresponds roughly to the period between 1950 and 1955, when his most famous work, the novel ?The Old Man and the Sea? was written. We only dressed the bust with a light shirt as Hemingway was living in pleasantly warm Cuba, at that time.
