ERNST BARLACH (German / 1870-1938)

Ernst Barlach was an Expressionist painter, printmaker, sculptor, and writer. Barlach was born in Wedel in Holstein. He studied at the School of Arts and Crafts in Hamburg, and then entered the Dresden Academy, where he studied under Robert Dietz. Ernst Barlach then spent a year in Paris at the Académie Julian, discovering the art of Millet, Meunier, and Vincent van Gogh. Barlach was a member of the Berlin Secession. In 1936, after the Nazis condemned his work as degenerate art, the Vienna Secession appointed Ernst Barlach an honorary member. Many of Ernst Barlach's sculptures were destroyed by the Nazis.
