From 1979, German sculptor Luise Kimme lived and worked in Tobago. Her work combines themes from local folklore with images from the Bible, classical myth, medieval art, and modern dance.
Resurrection to Dance is the catalogue of an exhibition of religious sculpture and bronze dancers shown at the National Museum in Port of Spain, Trinidad, in April and May 2003. It also records the murals, lecterns, and altar she created for the Church of the Transfiguration in Black Rock, Tobago, and a series of charcoal drawings depicting the Stations of the Cross.
Her other titles with MEP’s Prospect Press include Bolero and Resurrection to Dance, both also with photography by Stefan Falke. Luise Kimme passed away in April 2013 after a battle with cancer, working on her distinctive sculptures and enjoying time with her dogs until the end.
