Print of Maryan Rawicz sculpting

Date made: 1940

Description: A linocut print by Paul Henning of Maryan Rawicz working on a sculpture, viewed through a dormer window of the top floor room of a house in Hutchinson Camp.

Collected by Dr Klaus E. Hinrichsen (1912-2004) during his time as an internee in Hutchinson Camp. Hinrichsen was a young art historian who had fled to Britain in the 1930s to avoid Nazi persecution, and found himself interned with some of the leading German refugee artists of the day. He appreciated and recognised the significance of the material being produced in Hutchinson Camp, and began to collect and exhibit pieces within the camp. The resulting collection contains examples of the camps leading artists such as Erich Kahn, Hermann Fechenbach, Helmut Weissenborn, Bruno Ahrends, Fritz Kraemer and Paul Henning.

Paul Rudolf Henning (1886-1986) was a German expressionist sculptor and architect, known for designing an elongated block of houses in Berlin-Lichtenberg in 1931. His design was extremely advanced at the time. The buildings were oriented in a north-south direction and thus provided for optimal sunlight. All apartments had their own bathroom. During his career Henning created a variety of modern residential complexes in Berlin.
