Herbert Garbe is considered a member of the second generation of German Expressionists. As a member of the revolutionary November Group he created, among others, the Revolution Monument in Berlin-Friedrichsfelde. He was married to the sculptor Emy Roeder. Even though he was originally a member of the SPD (Social Democrats), he voluntarily joined the Nazi party in 1933 and went to the Villa Massimo in Rome, portraying Mussolini. In 1936, he became art director of the Städel School in Frankfurt, but later came into conflict with the authorities. Thereupon he went to Alsace where he created several female sculptures. When the war ended he was taken prisoner there, and died in a POW camp.
