German artist, a painter, graphic designer and professor. When he portrayed unflattering pictures of the Nazis with uninhibited social commentary, he was branded by the Party as a "degenerate artist." His work was deemed unacceptable during the time of the Third Reich and he was on the edge of actual danger.

He survived through WW II and became an educator. Died 25 July 1969, Singen, Germany.
