• Hoerle confronts us with the toil-stricken physiognomy of the depicted person in an unsparing poignancy and objectivity that reminds of Otto Dix's contemporaneous creation, hoever, it differs in terms of its formal stylization.
• From the days of the "Kölner Progressive", who showed works in group exhibitions in, among others, Amsterdam, Paris and Chicago since 1924.
• Currently Heinrich Hoerle's works are shown in the grand retrospective "Vision und Schrecken der Moderne. Industrie und künstlerischer Aufbruch" (2020/2021) at the Von der Heydt-Museum, Wuppertal.
• In 1936 Heinrich Hoerle died of tuberculosis at the age of 40, leaving behind a small but high-quality oeuvre.
• In context of the National Socialist's "Degenerate Art" campaign 21 works by Heinrich Hoerle were removed from German museums, and some of them were destroyed

"It must have been at some point in the early twenties when I first came across one of Heinrich Hoerle's paintings, and I was fascinated right away. I had never seen anything like it [.] The picture followed a very strict composition, it had two tubes looming large like chimneys, or perhaps even cannons, and a face in frontal view. He seemd to have conceived the color fields with divider and ruler. [.] No sentimentality, no "peinture", no effect gained from the color application. Through its means the painting was sort of naked, which would remain characteristic of Hoerle's entire mature creation."
Hans Schmitt-Rost, Kölnische Rundschau and Bonner Rundschau, August 29, 1970.
