Heinrich Zille (* 1945)
(* 10 January 1858 in Radeburg near Dresden; † 9 August 1929 in Berlin)
was a German artist, painter, and photographer.
In his art, Zille also named "Pinselheinrich" preferred topics from everyday life in Berlin, which he presented in a localist as well as sociocritical way.
After several detours, Zille started from 1900 more and more to consciously explore scenes from the proletarian underclass as a subject. Zille took his "Milljöh" to the backyards of tenements, back alleys and joints of the working-class neighbourhood.
Between 1882 and 1906 Heinrich Zille also temporarily turned towards photography. This was known only in 1967 and was later published in 3 books.
The Museum Berlinische Galerie acquired the Heinrich-Zille-archive. For the 10th anniversary the Bodo Niemann Gallery issued these two photos in a limited edition of 30 copies together with the museum, printed from the original glass negatives by photographer Manfred Paul.
