  1. I don't know August Heitmuller but it makes sense that he would be a founder of the Hanover Secession. His dates and style are just right.

    I do know Lovis Corinth, however. Heitmuller looks more harsh than Corinth, but the influence is clear.

  2. I guess he didn't produce much due to his illness "Beginning of the 1920s, he became seriously ill and was increasingly dependent on care." - German wiki
