Erich Heckel - The Poetic Expressionist

24 February - 26 May 2019

The Franz Marc Museum owns a large number of works by Erich Heckel, a leading member of the ´Brücke´ group. These include the important painting Parksee (Park Lake) from 1914, rare colour woodcuts such as Fränzi and Liegende auf schwarzem Tuch (Reclining Figure on a Black Cloth), more than sixty other woodcuts and numerous drawings and watercolours.

Eight illustrated postcards that Erich Heckel wrote to Franz Marc in 1912/13 from Berlin and the Baltic Sea are to be presented in a section of their own. This correspondence on the organisation of exhibitions, sales and Franz Marc´s bible project are being shown here - and published - for the first time.

Erich Heckel´s relationship to Sidi Riha, a dancer and his later partner, who the painter met in 1910, is another focal point of the exhibition. Sidi Riha virtually always sat as his model from that time onwards. The exhibition provides an overview of the museum´s holdings and an opportunity to gain a close look at this section of works in the collection.
