Conrad Felixmüller. Druckgraphik.
Jörg Maaß Kunsthandel
Rankestr. 24, 10789 Berlin, Germany
On the occasion of his 125th birthday we present a selection of his early prints including his famous Ruhrrevier-scenes in Rheinland’s coal-mining district.
Felixmüller, who was one of the leading artists of the second generation of German Expressionism, achieved his earliest success as a printmaker. He published many woodcuts and drawings in left-wing magazines and was mentor to the German Expressionist Otto Dix.
In the 1930s, many of his works were seized as degenerate art by the Nazis and in 1944, his studio in Berlin was bombed and a large part of his oeuvre was destroyed.
