Ernst Rudolf Vogenauer

[Germany] (b 1897/d 1972)

"(..) Ernst was an imaginative child. Gifted in alto voice, violin playing and drawing, he aspired to become a graphic artist.(..) Ernst Vogenauer studied in Munich during his early childhood and was a bright student of Fritz Helmut Ehmcke ; at the same time, he worked for the Consee's art printing office in Munich. In 1921, he left Munich for a job at the National Printing Office in Berlin where he worked until World War II ... (..) It was also at that time, in the 1920s ,that he illustrated an edition of the Bavarian novel Der Wittiber (The Widower) by the German writer Ludwig Thoma. He was gifted in various artistic crafts. In spite of his respect for the Old Masters ,he had an open mind about art and was attracted by futurism, cubism, and expressionism and with regard to his official work for the National Printing Office of Berlin and to avoid trouble, he often preferred to mark some of his private artistic works with the special signature "Saturn"... (..) After World War II, Vogenauer became an art teacher in the High Art School of Berlin-Weissensee, in East Germany.Ernst Rudolf Vogenauer was involved with German expressionism and participated in different international events such as the "First exhibition of modern art" in Bucharest. .From 1946 to 1962 he worked as docent at the Berlin-Weissensee Art School (Kunsthochschule Berlin-Weissensee).."
