Heinz Battke

Berlin 1900 — 1966 Frankfurt am Main

Heinz Battke was born into an upper-middle-class family in Berlin. After the death of her husband, Heinz’s mother Ada Battke married the conductor and composer Dr Rudolf Cahn-Speyer, who was heavily involved in the debate about copyright in music. In 1918, Heinz Battke began his studies in Berlin. Battke gave his first solo exhibition in 1927. After completing his studies in Berlin, Battke moved to Paris. In 1935, he was offered the headship of the painting class at the Rhineland Academy. However, this would have required him to join the Nazi Party, which he refused to do. As a result, he was declared a “degenerate” artist.
