Heinrich Campendonck

Aquarell auf Papier, 108 mm x 128 mm; signed on the back "Campendonk".
(attributed to Campendonck)

Heinrich Campendonck was a German painter, who studied at the "Fachschule für Textilindustrie and Kunstgewerbe" in his native Krefeld (1905–9).

August Macke's influence, along with that of Robert and Sonia Delaunay, is evident in Campendonck's harmonious and transparent Fauvist color applications. He exhibited together with " The Blue Rider" around the year 1911.

After emigration in 1935 to Holland, he was a teacher at the "Art Academy" in Amsterdam (The Netherlands) and lived and worked there until his death in 1957.
