Biography from Auctionata:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Wilhelm Lachnit began his artistic education 1914/18 with training as a sign writer.  He became a pupil of the Dresden Academy on 1920/23, where he met Otto Dix whose art had a substantial impact on his work.

Lachnit’s main body of work encompasses figural depictions and portraits, which were acquired among others, by the Moscow Collections and the Gemäldegalerie Dresden.

In 1924, he joined the Communist Party of Germany and established the ‘Neue Gruppe’ together with Hans Grundig, Otto Griebel and Fritz Skade.  He was a co-founder of the ‘Assoziation revolutionärer bildender Künstler’ in 1929, of the Dresden group ‘Aktion’ in 1930 and member of the ‘Neue Dresden Sezession 1932’.  Part of his work was classified as ‘degenerate art’ seized in 1933.  The artist himself was arrested and afterwards continued his work only in a very limited way.

He was appointed a professor of painting at the Hochschule für Bildende Künste Dresden in 1947. (tm)
