Description: The Unpainted and Painted Flat Bach Tin Figure 

 

Until recently, there was no impressive flat tin figure from Johann Sebastian Bach, which had pleased both of us. And as son and sister-in-law of a passionate tin-figures-collector, the path to such a piece of jewelry was still a challenge, but with the support of the professional in the family, we were finally successful. 7 artists and creators were needed to make this idea of a small flat tin figure, come true. At first, of course, Bach was needed. Then the next was the painter Gottlob Elias Haußmann, who has known still known Bach personally and portrayed him in two oil paintings. This portrait was the basis for the sculptor who created the Bach Monument in Eisenach; He is no.3. Of this sculpture, another unknown artist made a steel engraving. From this steel engraving another engraver drew the necessary drawing and then he engraved the figure. He is number no. 5. Finally, however, there was somebody needed who could imagine all this as a "tin figure project", that is my husband Peter Bach, Jr. And without his father the project wouldn’t have come true, so we have the creatives in the project no. 6 and 7. An eighth artist is needed when this so-called raw or bare tin figure comes to the next expert in the team: the painter who can paint so delicately that these tiny figures get faces and the clothes lights and shadows.

More Information About the 3-Dimesional Bach Tin Figure

 

Only about one in 1,000 tin figure collectors collects 3-dimensional themes. Putting a tin figurine in the cabinet does not make someone a collector ... nevertheless, the number above is estimated. 3-dimensional tin figures – in contrast to flat ones – are usually higher, namely 10 centimeters  (... 3.93 inches) instead of the better known flat ones with only 4 centimeters (... 1.57 inches). And the 3-dimensional ones are much, really much heavier. Bach in this form is perfect as a paperweight, for example. Bach weighs a whopping 312 grams (... 0.69 lbs). Of course, he feels most comfortable on a desk, so that every visitor discovers him. Of course, the unpainted version of this tin figure makes a powerful impression. As a painted 3-dimensional figure, however, it is a real hit.

More Information Regarding the 3-Dimensional Bach Tin Figure

 

We also have the 3-dimensional 10-centimeter-high tin figure of Johann Sebastian Bach painted by a gifted artist – of course, it is the same expert who paints the flat tin figures for us – and why would he use his arts on this larger of the two miniatures less. The result is really impressive: It is like a real oil painting, just applied to a very small surface. The more delicate the details, the more steady the artist's hand must be. Without a magnifying glass, there is no way he can cope with details. Assuming that there are certainly no more than five painters in the whole of Germany who can do this in this quality – perhaps there are only five in the world – the result is a rarity. Even to paint several tin figures in a too narrow period of time, a single artist does not manage. And abroad it is not possible to have them painted in these mini-quantities. Many German tin figure collectors have made this experience, and we use it because my father-in-law told about it.  

 

A painted 3-dimensional figure is most certainly an attraction and catches the attention of every visitor. Only one option can increase this attraction: a blank, that is, unpainted tin figure diagonally behind the painted. Thus, a full Bach story is complete with this miniature ensemble.
