Born in 1924 in Würzburg, northern Bavaria, Fritz Koenig lived in Ganslberg near the Bavarian city of Landshut for much of his life. He died there on Wednesday evening, according to information from the Sculpture Museum in Landshut.
The museum's main body of work was donated by Koenig and his wife, Maria, in 1993. Apart from his own works, it includes objects from his significant private collection of African art.
After graduating from high school in 1942, Koenig studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich and in 1964 became a professor of sculpture at the Technical University (TU) in Munich.
