HECKEL, Erich (1883–1970)
“Der Richter” / The Judge
woodcut / 6 3/8 inches by 5 1/8 inches / edition unknown
Considered one of Germany’s finest Expressionist artists, Heckel was a founding member of Die Brücke (The Bridge). This print titled “The Judge” may be a posthumous printing. Despite that possibility, however, it is an important addition to the collection, acquired during a trip to Europe in the late 1970s.
