Carl Lohse: An Expressionist

Carl Lohse created an œuvre that was as brilliant as it was short‑lived. From the autumn of 1919 to the spring of 1921, the expressionist painter experienced real creative noise, and by 1920, was feted for his great promise, but gave up his artistic existence for a life as a tram conductor and is still seen as an insider tip: Carl Lohse (1895–1965), from Hamburg, is one of the mavericks of modernist art. His early works are to be seen in the Albertinum at an exhibition put together in cooperation with the Ernst Barlachhaus in Hamburg. For the first time, the show highlights the main features of the artist from public and private collections from Eastern and Western Germany.
