Heinrich Siepmann is one of the most important representatives of the German post-war avant-garde. He was born in 1904 in Mülheim an der Ruhr and studied from 1925 to 1927 at the Folkwangschule in Essen. Still life and landscapes characterized his realistic-figurative early work.
The successful artist career was abruptly interrupted by the 2nd World War. In 1948 Heinrich Siepmann founded with well-known artist colleagues how Gustav Deppe, Thomas Grochowiak and Emil Schumacher the artist group 'junger westen' with the aim of restoring the connection to the art of modernity lost during the Nazi era.
In his paintings he used more and more the formal language of Concrete Art, with clear geometric forms and structures. He received numerous awards and prizes and is represented in many major museums and public collections, how e.g. the Rheinisches Landesmuseum Bonn, in the Folkwangmuseum in Essen , in the Museum for Concrete Art in Ingolstadt with his work. Heinrich Siepmann died in 2002 in his hometown Mülheim an der Ruhr.
The exhibition at the Kunstgalerie Meerbusch is made possible by the cooperation with WETTMANN Internationale Auktionen in Mülheim at Ruhr .
