Kündung
The art magazine Kündung ranks among the most ambitious projects of German Expressionism, combining striking imagery with hand-cut typography. The quality of the impressions and an extraordinarily low print run of just 200 made Kündung the foremost publication of its kind.

It heralded a new age of Expressionist art and aimed to reinvigorate contemporary culture through a fusion of the figurative and the abstract. Having premiered in January of 1921, it ran for just twelve issues. This is a rare opportunity to acquire one of these extraordinary prints.
Gerhard von Ruckteschell PortraitGerhard von Ruckteschell was born in Hamburg in 1894. After the First World War he studied at the University of Music, Freiburg, whilst also serving as a carpenter’s apprentice. He received his master’s in 1927 and consequently opened his own workshop. He produced wood carvings and sculptures throughout his life, experimenting with Expressionist ideas during the beginning of his career.

His sculptures can be found throughout the town of Burg am Wald, just outside of Freiburg, where he was employed to help renovate the town. His early work was featured as part of an Expressionist exhibition in Holland during the 1980s.
