Erwin Oehl

1907 Thalmässing — 1988 München

Erwin Christ Nikolaus Oehl studied painting under Hermann Groeber at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich from 1926 to 1927. He then spent three semesters at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna as a student of Wilhelm Dachauer. In 1929, he moved to Berlin. In 1930, Oehl returned to Munich and became a member of the German Communist Party (KPD). He co-founded and chaired the Munich branch of the Association of Revolutionary Visual Artists of Germany (ASSO) in 1932, which gathered together assorted communist artists. Oehl’s studio became a meeting place for members of Munich’s anti-war committee, such as Oskar Maria Graf, Thomas Mann and Anita Augspurg. After the National Socialists assumed power, Oehl was persecuted for his political beliefs. He was arrested in March 1933 and was subsequently forbidden from residing in Munich.
