Fritz Winter – Neue Formen
Arbeiten auf Papier 1925-1975
Fritz Winter (1905-1976) is one of the most significant figures in German post-war art. After studying with Oskar Schlemmer, Vassily Kandinsky, and Paul Klee at the Bauhaus in Dessau, Winter decided around 1930 to devote himself to abstract painting.
Over the following decades he created works whose exciting visual forms continually suggest natural structures: the growth patterns of plants, rock formations, microorganisms, and celestial constellations. Winter's variety of themes, experiments with technique, and inventive visual series are particularly evident in his works on paper.
This publication features around 250 monotypes, gouaches, oil paintings, and drawings in pencil, brush, chalk, and felt pen, all organized into groups and explained in detail. Winter's is a multifaceted oeuvre of remarkable timeliness waiting to be rediscovered.
