Pen and ink sketch of Herwarth Walden

Herwarth Walden (actual name Georg Lewin, September 16, 1879, in Berlin – October 31, 1941, in Saratov, Russia) was a German Expressionist artist and art expert in many disciplines. He is broadly acknowledged as one of the most important discoverers and promoters of German avant-garde art in the early twentieth century (Expressionism, Futurism, Dadaism, Magic Realism).


  • Art is something given,not reproduced...the painter paints what he sees with his innermost senses,the expression of his being..every other impression becomes,for him,an inner expression.
    • Erster Deutscher Herbstsalaon (1913)
