Every fourth week I’m going to highlight one of the New Masters.
Introducing the work of Conrad Felixmuller. Born in 1897 he was a German art student who became an orderly in an Army hospital amidst the trying circumstances of WWI. After the war Felixmuller founded with his friends Expressionistische Arbeitsgemeinschaft Dresden, and a year later joined one of the bedrock art movements of the 20th century, The Neue Sachlichkeit ~pronounced sac lick it~(SYGDWM!!1).
Felixmuller’s use of color here lends the familiar forms of figure a unique perspective.
This one is my favorite.
Later in life he settled down a bit and painted such wonderful portraits.
On and On.
