Christian Heinrich Kleukens

painter, graphic artist, book artist

* 1880 in Achim bei Bremen - † 1954 in Darmstadt

Christian Heinrich Kleukens was able to learn his trade as a printer in his brother's workshop in Berlin. He followed him to Darmstadt in 1907 and was also accepted as a member of the artists' colony in 1913. Here the brothers worked together for the "Ernst Ludwig-Presse", producing high-quality book art. After the end of the artists' colony, the younger Kleukens brother continued to run the "Ernst Ludwig-Presse" together with Rudolf Binding, now calling it "Kleukens-Presse" and transferring it to Mainz.
