ABOUT







Heinrich Vogeler

Heinrich Vogeler (b. 1872, Bremen, Germany) was an art nouveau era artist, designer, illustrator and teacher, known for his paintings and for his illustrations of fairy tales. He also did some work for the art nouveau magazine Pan. From 1894 on, he lived for some time in the artist colony at Worpswede, Germany. In 1908 he and his brother Franz founded the Worpsweder Werkst&aauml;tte, which produced household objects. He studied at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf from 1890-1895. With sympathies for the working class, after the Great War, he became a pacifist and joined the Communist Party of Germany (KPD). The romanticism of his early art nouveau work gave way to proletarian content. In 1931, Vogeler and his second wife, Sonja Marchlewska, emigrated to Russia. Ironically, he was deported in 1941 to Kazakhstan by Soviet authorities, and died there in 1942.

Jugendstil Initials (2007, HiH, Malcolm Wooden) is a commercial digital revival of Jugendstil Initialen (1905, Rudhardsche). Compare with Vogeler Caps (2002, Petra Heidorn, CybaPee Creations) and Vogeler Initialen (2002, Dieter Steffmann), both free revivals of a similar style face.

Other typefaces by him include Vogeler Zierat (1904, Rudhardsche Giesserei), Kalender Bilder (1910, Klingspor).
