Collection: Robert M. Huth   1980 - 1977 

Robert Huth was born in Erfurt in 1890. At the age of 14 he attended the school of arts and crafts in his native town, where he studied until 1906. In 1919, after the war, Huth settled in Berlin as a freelance painter. This was the place to be for the artistic avant-garde, and Huth became part of the "Brücke" artist group.

He was in contact with George Grosz, Karl Schmidt-Rottluff, Karl Hofer, Max Pechstein and Erich Heckel and in 1919 he was a founding member of the expressionist artist group "Jung-Erfurt". He showed works in the Free Secession in 1920 and was part of the first exhibition of German art in the U.S.A. in 1923.
