Der Sturm

Herwarth Walden, Der Sturm, 1910–1932

Published by Herwarth Walden, Der Sturm documented the early 20th-century avant-garde in Germany. Originally issued weekly, Der Sturm included fiction, poetry, cultural criticism, and political essays, but its primary focus was the visual arts. The magazine eventually became well-known for the inclusion of woodcuts and linocuts by artists including Marc Chagall, Paul Klee, Franz Marc, and Vasily Kandinsky. After establishing the magazine, Walden founded the Galerie Der Sturm, in which he exhibited works by many of the same artists featured in his magazine. He also published several books through his Sturm publishing house, many of which are also in the Guggenheim Library collection. The Library’s Der Sturm holdings are available full text online through the Internet Archive (onsite access only); e-mail libraryandarchives@guggenheim.org for details.
