Nude etching drawing.
Artist : Heinrich Vogeler
Heinrich Vogeler (December 12, 1872 – June 14, 1942) was a German painter, designer, and architect, associated with the Düsseldorf school of painting.
He made book illustrations and executed decorative paintings for the town hall of Bremen shortly before traveling to Ceylon in 1906. In 1908 he and his brother Franz founded the ‘Worpsweder Werkstätte’, which produced household objects. His paintings increasingly reflected his sympathy for the working class.
He volunteered for military service in World War I in 1914, and he was sent to the eastern front in 1915. After he made a written appeal for peace to the German Emperor, he was briefly sent to a mental hospital in Bremen before being discharged from military service.
After the war, he became a pacifist and joined the Communist Party of Germany (KPD). It was at that time that he and his wife Martha were divorced. From that point on, he wanted to work ideologically, and the romanticism of his earlier work gave way to proletarian content. In 1931 Vogeler and his second wife, Sonja Marchlewska, emigrated to Russia. He was deported in 1941 to Kazakhstan by Soviet authorities, and died there in 1942.
