Julo Levin

1901 Stettin — 1943 Auschwitz

Julo (Julius) Levin came from a Jewish family in Stettin. He did a commercial apprenticeship and also enrolled for evening classes at the Stettin Art School in 1919. That same year, he moved to Essen to attend the School of Applied Arts, where he studied with Karl Kriete, Josef Urbach and Johan Thorn Prikker. He followed his teacher Thorn Prikker to the Munich School of Applied Arts in 1921, then to the Düsseldorf Art Academy in 1923. In Düsseldorf, he also attended courses by Heinrich Campendonk and Heinrich Nauen, and was made a master student of the latter. He also became friends with Franz Monjau. After completing his studies in 1926, Levin joined the Young Rhineland group that was centred around Johanna Ey, and later also joined the Rhine Secession in Düsseldorf. Between 1927 and 1930, Levin took part in the exhibitions of both these groups, and in 1928 also participated in the exhibition of the Die Juryfreien association in Berlin. In 1928, Levin joined the Association of Revolutionary Visual Artists of Germany (ASSO), which was closely allied with the German Communist Party.
