“[John …] was a painter. For him, like me, art was the only thing that gave life meaning and value. He regarded the war as a crime. He hated everyone who shouted hurrah and hung banners from the windows, and felt akin to those who suffered and bled.”
In 1962, Wieland Herzfelde, John Heartfield’s brother, publishes a comprehensive Heartfield monograph Verlag der Kunst (Emperor Of Art) in Dresden.
John Heartfield participates in the V. Deutsche Kunstausstellung (Fifth German Art Exhibition).
