In 1930, the antifascist activist artist John Heartfield was a mere five-foot-two inches (158.496 cm) tall. He weighed approximately 100 pounds (45.3592 kilograms). He had piercing blue eyes and a fiery temper. This was the frail body that John Heartfield placed squarely in the cross hairs of the Nazi assassination squads. Yet, he survived because he was treasured by those who knew he was one of their most potent weapons against The Nazis. Here are rare photos of Heartfield’s senior years from The John J Heartfield Collection. The artist who made his art a weapon to express his furious hatred of Adolf Hitler and his allies was known to be kind and gentle with those he loved, befriended, and admired. His family called him “Jonny.” The family of his Italian daughter-in-law affectionately called him “Professore.” His grandson calls him his hero and his inspiration.John J Heartfield presents never-before-published photos of Heartfield as a fighter, friend, and family man.
