Vintage German Posters | Christian Rohlfs | Return of the Prodigal Son

Christian Rohlfs (1849 – 1938) was a German painter and printmaker, one of the important representatives of German expressionism. Meetings with Edvard Munch and Emil Nolde and the experience of seeing the works of Vincent van Gogh inspired him to move towards the expressionist style, in which he would work for the rest of his career. In 1937 the Nazis expelled him from the Prussian Academy of Arts, condemned his work as degenerate, and removed his works from public collections. Seventeen of his paintings were exhibited in the Degenerate Art Exhibition in 1937.
