England is regarded as the cradle of Pop Art and spawned numerous unusual positions on the phenomenon of the then revolutionary, new art movement.

Erich Heckel

in den Kunstsammlungen Chemnitz
Erich Heckel is known as one of Germany’s most famous classic modern artists. He was a co-founder of the artists’ group, Die Brücke, as well as its chief executive, and exercised great influence over the development of German Expressionism. Like Ernst Ludwig Kirchner and Karl Schmidt-Rottluff, Heckel also grew up in Chemnitz. The companion catalogue to the exhibition at the Museum Gunzenhauser focuses on Heckel’s early days in Chemnitz—his family, his friendship with Schmidt-Rotluff, and founding of the Gruppe Vulkan—and is the first to present a complete survey of his works from the Chemnitz art collections, the Gunzenhauser Collection, and never-before-seen works on loan from private owners.
