Notably published by Verlag Der Sturm, the publishing imprint founded by Herwarth Walden, the pseudonym of Georg Levin or Lewin (1878-1941). Walden was a German-Jewish writer, editor, and musician. He founded Verlag Der Sturm in 1910 to publish his weekly avant-garde newspaper, _Der Sturm_, which featured the latest news in avant-garde art, literature, music, and culture. Walden also founded an art gallery of the same name, Galerie Der Sturm, which showcased the work of avant-garde artists. Walden helped to usher in avant-garde art movements such as Expressionism, Futurism, Cubism, Dadaism, and Magic Realism to the German art scene. Galerie Der Sturm officially closed in 1924, but Walden continued to organize art exhibitions and _Der Sturm_ newspaper remained in print until 1932. Walden had fled Germany following the rise of fascism and Nazism and worked as a teacher and publisher in Moscow. Sadly, Walden was persecuted by Stalin's Communist regime for his association with the avant-garde; he died in prison in 1932.
