He went to the Academy of Great Arts in Dresden and afterwards served in Globe Battle I. He started painting scenery while apprenticing with Carl Senff from 1906 to 1910. He was terminated from his teaching placement at Dresden Academy following the Nazis increased to power and condemned his artwork as degenerate. His dad, Franz, was an iron foundry employee and his mom, Louise Dix, was a seamstress and beginner poet. He was the daddy of two sons–Ursus and Jan–and a girl, Nelly. He was compelled by Adolf Hitler’s Nazi routine to paint just benign landscapes; nevertheless, he continued to generate allegorical functions that subtly denounced Nazism.
