German sculptor Edwin Scharff was classified in the Nazi exhibition of “degenerate art” with two of his works, both of which have since been lost. Scharff was excluded in 1933 from his teaching job and was not allowed to work after 1937. In total, 46 of his works were destroyed as degenerate art. After the war, Scharff taught at the State Art School in Hamburg.
Scharff started as a graphic artist and was a founding member of the München New Secession. He was severely wounded in World War I, spending a year in hospital. He was a professor in Berlin from 1923. His style was a mix of Cubism and Expressionism. In 1955 and 1959 his works were shown at documenta 1 and 2 in Kassel. In 1999, an Edwin Scharff Museum was opened in Neu-Ulm.
