Heinrich Campendonck PortraitHeinrich Mathias Ernst Campendonck was a painter and graphic designer born in Germany.

After his studies under the Dutch artist Johan Thorn Prikker at the Krefeld "Kunstgewerbeschule", Heinrich Campendonck followed Franz Marc's invitation to the Bavarian village of Sindelsdorf and moved there in 1911. At that time Heinrich Campendonck already found the basic subject of his works: the depiction of harmony between man and beast, Creation, the infinite circle of life and death. He produced paintings, watercolors, gouaches and his first woodcuts.

In Sindelsdorf the artist met other members of the "Blauer Reiter" group and participated in one of the group's exhibitions that very same year. Two years later, Heinrich Campendonck also showed his work together with the "Blauer Reiter" at the "Erster Deutscher Herbstsalon" at Herwarth Walden's gallery "Der Sturm" in Berlin. During these years Campendonck's artwork was influenced by Marc, Macke and Kandinsky. A stiff geometrical form language was combined with color in pure complementary contrasts to a dynamic, rhythmic form language.
