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.
Robert Kopke PortraitRobert Köpke (1893 -1968) was a German painter and graphic artist At the beginning of the First World War , he was drafted into military service and came to France after recruiting to the Western Front. Around 1920 Koepke met the poet and painter Karl Lorenz (1888-1961), who reproduced Köpke’s expressionist woodcuts in his publications.

Köpke kept meticulous notes during the war and also when exploring the countryside to work in the natural environment. A versatile artist, he was prolific in his botanical paintings, poster designs as well as commissioned art work for furniture, lamps, wallpaper and fabrics.
