Ernst Gottschalk

1877 Düsseldorf — 1942 Düsseldorf

Ernst Gottschalk began his professional training as a woodcarver in 1892, at a time when he was attending evening classes given by Rudolf Bosselt at the Düsseldorf School of Arts and Crafts. From 1905 onwards, Gottschalk studied at the Art School at Hallesches Tor in Berlin. In 1906 he travelled to southern Russia and worked at a state school in Ekaterinoslav (today Dnipro in Ukraine). From 1907 to 1910 he returned to study at the School of Arts and Crafts in Düsseldorf. Gottschalk’s studies were interrupted by the First World War, in which he served as a medical orderly.

From 1920 onwards, Gottschalk worked as a freelance artist and was a member of the “Young Rhineland” group; in 1923, together with other members, he founded the “Rhine Group”. He was also active in the “Rhine Secession”. Gottschalk was given numerous commissions for bronze sculptures in public places.
