Two Fishermen (SOLD)
Oil on painters board
Eric Waske was part of the first wave of the Expressionist movement in Germany. He studied in Berlin at the Hochschule für bildende Künste (School of the Visual Arts) from 1909 to 1912.
Waske exhibted as part of the group known as the ‘Die Brücke’ alongside artists like Kirchner, Heckel, or Schmitt-Rottluff. He was also associated with the Neuen Berliner Secession, and later the Berliner Secession. The Nazis declared his work to be “entartete Kunst” (Degenerate Art) and during the war most of his early paintings were destroyed in a bomb attack. Evacuated from Berlin during the war, Waske returned to live there in 1946.
This work almost certainly dates to the post-war period, probably the 1950s or 60s.
