Astral Composition XIX
Wilhelm Morgner, born in Soest in 1891, is one of the most important Expressionist artist from the region Westphalia in Germany. The focus of his work lies on his artistic environment, the inspiration he took from it and his highly independent manner of representation. He was at the forefront of contemporary artistic debate and reacted with surprising aplomb to the manifold impressions around him. As result of his military service and the outbreak of the First World War, he painted his last canvasses at the age of 22. Morgner was killed in action in 1917.
