Catalogue of exhibition of Academy of arts in Berlin, Munich, 2008, p. 24. Heinrich Zille - an artist that embodies, according to Kurt Tucholsky, "the purest incarnation of Berlin". In 1858, as the son of a blacksmith in Radeburg near Dresden, where born, dates back to the later Berlin's self from a social law under privileged Milieu. So it is not surprising that Zille is in his later existence as a graphic designer, painter and photographer as a socially critical, sometimes sarcastic, occasionally humorous chronicler of the proletariat of the growing city. By means of his überspitze character style, which is characterized primarily by a quick, elegant spring guide, dissected the also called "brush Henry" well-known artists from the Worries and troubles of life characterized the world of the social underclass. In this national, politically-motivated context, the work "Against Tomorrow" (1901), which was provided in accordance with a back label affixed to the "IV. art exhibition of the Secession," adds doubt. As a protégé of the conveyor, Max Liebermann, Zille is at the beginning of the 20th century. Century finally a full member of this progressive artists ' group, and thus part of the avant-garde art scene in the German cities of Berlin. At the same time he published his drawings in various magazines, including "Simplicissimus" and "Jugend", and published collections of his Work in book form. The opening of the Zille Museum in Berlin's Nikolai quarter is a good example for the recognition, even posthumously, is the artists whether its historically unprecedented action as a commentator of the time spirit awards.
