The painter of the New Objectivity
In spite of dying young, Angelika Fick Hoerle (1899-1923), left a very promising artistic inheritance. She witnessed the first World War, the November revolution and Dadaism, which influenced her greatly. Hoerle developed a form of artistic expression, that builds upon Surrealism and the Cologne Progressives. Only a few of Hoerles works can be found nowadays, due to her death at only 23 years old, she was the wife of Heinrich Hoerle a Dadaist from Cologne and member of the Cologne Progressives. Even Max Ernst valued her phantastic configurations. For over 60 Years Angelika Fick Hoerle has been the mysterious stranger.
