Erich Heckel (1883-1970) was a German painter and printmaker, and a founding member of the Die Brucke group ("The Bridge") which existed 1905-1913. In 1937 the Nazi Party declared his work "degenerate"; it forbade him to show his work in public, and over 700 items of his art were confiscated from the nation's museums. By 1944 all of his woodcut blocks and print plates had been destroyed.   more from wikipedia »
