Kurt Nantke

1900 Eckernförde — 1979 Wuppertal

Kurt Nantke was born in Eckernförde in Schleswig-Holstein in 1900. Four years later, his family moved to Barmen, where his father, Paul Hermann Nantke, was appointed a professor of architecture at the Building Trades School. Nantke broke off his school studies and in 1917 enrolled at the School of Arts and Crafts in Barmen to study painting under Gustav Wiethüchterand Ludwig Fahrenkrog. In 1919 he took part in the first exhibition of the Young Rhineland group in the Kunsthalle in Düsseldorf. Just one year later, he was one of the co-founders of an artists’ association called “Die Wupper”, which was expanded to form the “Wupperkreis” in 1927/8.
