Description:
Erich Heckel WEISSE PFERDE 1883 - 1970 Woodcut printed in black, green, blue and light grey, 1912, signed and dated in pencil, the fourth (final state), presumably from the unnumbered edition of 80, on heavy Japan paper, printed by J.B. Neumann, Berlin, framed image: 30.8 by 31cm.; 12 1/8 by 12 1/4 in. sheet: 59.6 by 47.4cm.; 23 1/4 by 18 5/8 in. Literature Annemarie & Wolf-Dieter Dube, Erich Heckel - Das Graphische Werk, Band I Holzschnitte, New York, 1964, no.242, illustrated (another example). Catalogue Note Weisse Pferde is widely considered to be one of Erich Heckel’’’’’’’’s most masterful colour woodcuts. The artist created the work in 1912; a year that saw Heckel visit his fellow Expressionist, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, on the island of Fehmarn in the Baltic Sea. Around this time, Kirchner described the island as follows: ‘Ochre, blue, and green are the colours of Fehmarn, a wonderful coast formation often of South Sea opulence, absurd flowers with fat stems…’’’’’’’’ (quoted in Donald E. Gordon, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, HUP, Cambridge, 1968, p.24). Kirchner’’’’’’’’s reflection could almost directly describe this composition, and given the timing of Heckel’’’’’’’’s visit to the island, scholars have posited that Weisse Pferde pictures or imagines a scene on the Baltic island. The work depicts two men leading a pair of horses; they are apparently about to meet a third protagonist, who moves hastily towards the riders. Each of the figures is pictured in a simplified form and with his back to the viewer. They thereby impede analysis of emotive, human content, and one is instead encouraged to focus on the vital and untamed atmosphere that the work exudes. Jaklyn Babington provides a compelling reading of the work’’’’’’’’s subject matter: ‘It was during this year [1912] that Heckel met the leading artists of the Munich-based artists group Der Blaue Reiter … Franz Marc and Wassily Kandinsky. Marc, in particular, viewed the horse as a symbol of energy and strength and had adopted this motif as the major theme in his work. The unusual appearance of the horse in Heckel’’’’’’’’s Weisse Pferde, in combination with the meeting of three figures, can be interpreted as a momentary fusion of the ideas of two revolutionary artist groups: Der Blaue Reiter and Die Brücke’’’’’’’’ (Artonview, National Gallery of Australia). To create the work, Heckel carved two woodblocks: one for the black components of the image and the other for the coloured areas. The artist then painted each colour directly onto the second woodblock. The composition thus combines the softer, more differentiated and uninhibited qualities of painting with the bold and flat, graphic immediacy that is inherent to the medium of woodcutting. As Kristin Makholm puts it: ‘Graphic and painterly qualities are thoroughly unified in this extraordinary colour woodcut by Erich Heckel.’’’’’’’’ Significantly, Heckel’’’’’’’’s technique in creating Weisse Pferde endowed each impression of the subject with a singular character. Makholm continues: ‘because [the artist] applied the colours differently every time, Heckel relinquished all uniformity from one impression to the next, creating a body of virtually unique prints.’’’’’’’’ (Prints in Germany 1905-1923, Saint Louis, 1993, p.34).

Erich Heckel (1883-1970) Erich Heckel was born in 1883 in Döbeln and studied architecture before he dedicated himself to the fine arts. In 1905 Heckel initiated the ‘Brücke’’’’’’’’ in Dresden along with Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Karl Schmidt-Rottluff and Fritz Bleyl (who quit in 1907) – a group of expressionist artists. Later the group was joined by Max Pechstein, Emil Nolde and Otto Mueller. In 1913, the group dissolved and Erich Heckel presented his first solo exhibition at Gallery Fritz Gurlitt. In 1955 he took part in the first documenta in Kassel. Several major retrospectives were organized on the occasion of his 70th and 80th birthday. Heckel has received numerous awards and honors, such as the Great Cross of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany in 1953, and the Order Pour le Mérite for Science and the Arts in 1967. (msc)
