Specialist in classical greek sculpture. Particularly concerned with the differentiation between the High and Late Hellenistic periods. Called to a professorship in Classical Archaeology at the University of Göttingen in 1941, but did not assume the position until 1945, in the meantime serving in the Foreign Office during World War II. Educated many future archaeologists and art historians of classical Greece, although not affiliated or responsible for a particular "school" or method.
