Gustav Kampmann original chromo lithograph print 1899 German Expressionist.
A striking chromo lithograph print by the German artist Gustav Kampmann (1859 - 1917). Published by The Studio magazine of Fine and Applied Art in 1899 it depicts a woodland scene in tones of red, black and a deep ochre, simple yet very effective in the manner of expressionist art of the time. As with much German art of this period it has a very modern feel and would suit a wide range of decorative schemes.
Gustav Kampmann was a German painter and graphic artist . He studied art at the Grand Duchy of Baden art school in Karlsruhe where he was a student of Gustav Schoenleber and Hermann Balsch. Later a founder member of the Karlsruhe Kunstlererbund under the leadership of Count Kulckreuth in 1896, a body devoted to the teaching and development of the art of modern lithography and its application in a more commercial sense. The young artists involved were all part of the artistic revolt at the time against 'senile' artistic tradition although they deliberately avoided use of the term "secession" as used in other cities to define their artistic style.
Most of Kampmanns work is in the field of lithographs but as with other Karlsruhe artists can be found on postcards and other commercial applications. His work can be found in the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and various German public collections.
