Summary

Deutsch: Thomas Theodor Heine: Möpse. Zeichnung. Tusche, Aquarell, Deckweiß auf Zeichenpapier, 18 cm x 27,2 cm, Städtische Galerie im Lenbachhaus und Kunstbau München

Thomas Theodor Heine's name is nowadays associated primarily with the magazine "Simplicissimus", which the artist shaped to a great extent with his caricatures. Heine's talent for drawing was evident while he was still young and his cartoons of teachers caused him to be expelled from school. In 1884 he began to study painting at the Düsseldorf Academy under Eduard von Gebhardt and Peter Janssen. The paintings Thomas Theodor Heine did while at the Academy reveal a stylistic commitment to Impressionism. Heine moved to Munich in 1889. When Albert Langen founded a publishing house in Paris in 1893, Heine stopped working for "Die Fliegenden Blätter". Two years later he became a co-founder of "Simplicissimus" and was the chief draughtsman employed by the magazine.
