About Georg Ehrlich
(b Vienna, 22 Feb 1897; d Lucerne, 1 July 1966). British sculptor, printmaker and painter of Austrian birth. He studied at the Kunstgewerbeschule in Vienna between 1912 and 1915. His first mature works date from c. 1918. In 1919 he moved to Munich, and then to Berlin in 1921, where, under contract to Paul Cassirer, his work was exhibited alongside that of Ernst Barlach, Oskar Kokoschka and Wilhelm Lehmbruck. He returned to Vienna in 1923, with a considerable reputation as an Expressionist printmaker. Many of his etchings and lithographs are religious in subject-matter, such as the Crucifixion (lithograph, 1920; Vienna, Albertina), full of Angst born largely of his experiences as a soldier in World War I.
