Like many Wisconsin artists before him, Wolfgang Klein was born in Germany and later immigrated to Milwaukee. A student of German Expressionist master Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Klein was an educator in Berlin before relocating to the United States in 1954. He started working in advertising and then taught for many years at the YWCA in Milwaukee and Marquette University. Klein’s woodblock prints reveal both Kirchner’s stylistic influence and Klein’s deep connection to Milwaukee.
