Today, in 1883, Mr. Erich Heckel was born in Germany. He helped to found a group called ‘The Bridge’ with three friends, all interested in Expressionism. Mr. Heckel himself had a long career including painting, woodcuts, lithographs and etchings. Much of his work was politically unacceptable, and was banned and destroyed.
There is something pleasingly cutting edge about his own work, a dark mysterious quality that Rhinos gravitate to. We like primitive stuff.
