Gert Heinrich Wollheim

1894 Loschwitz bei Dresden — 1974 New York

Gert Wollheim was born in 1894, the son of the well-off Jewish industrialist Heinrich Wollheim. In 1900, the family moved to Berlin. After briefly attending the “open-air life-drawing school” of Hans Lietzmann, Wollheim enrolled at the Grand-Ducal Saxon School for Fine Arts in Weimar in 1911. Wollheim became friends with the graphic artist and painter Otto Pankok. In 1919, Wollheim and Pankok joined the Aktivistenbund 1919, an association of left-wing intellectuals in Dusseldorf. In 1920, Wollheim joined the Young Rhineland association, at the heart of which was the gallery known as “Junge Kunst – Frau Ey”, run by Johanna Ey. Together with Arthur Kaufmann and Adolf Uzarski, Wollheim organised the First International Art Exhibition in Dusseldorf in 1922. In 1925 he moved to Berlin and joined the November Group.
