Mercker, after Erich (German), Industrial Mill Scene in Germany, mid 20th century reproduction print on paper, after the original oil on canvas painting, in a wood frame 31 x 37 inches. Mercker was a prolific painter with a complicated legacy, as his industrial scenes were highly prized by the Nazi's narrowly define art aesthetic. Although, it should be noted that he did express regret after the war over his complicity with the regime.
