Biography Ludwig Thormaehlen
The art historian and sculptor Thormaehlen was a friend of the poet Stefan George, whose circle was also close to Erich Heckel. The notoriety of the two artists is reflected not only in Thormaehlen's bronze portrait, but also manifests itself in an oil painting by Heckel from 1924. The young Thormaehlen is depicted with the artist friend before the work model of the bust of Heckel (Vogt 1924/4).
