1926 - 1938
Peter Christian Breuer's Beethoven monument
Eventually, only one element from Breuer's model was actually realised in a larger format. Fritz Diederich, a long-time assistant of Breuer's created Beethoven's figure in granite. After Breuer's death, the scuplture was displayed in public at the 'Alte Zoll' in Bonn. In 1949, it was removed and put up for display again in 1977 - this time at the 'Rheinaue' in Bonn.
