ARTIST BIOGRAPHY

Conrad Felixmüller, born in 1897 in Dresden and died in 1977 in Berlin, was a prolific painter and printmaker, arguably one of the most influential proponents of German expressionism. Felixmüller received his education from the Academy of Fine Arts in Dresden, where he studied at Carl Bantzer's painting class (1912-5). Finishing the academy, the artist was active in several circles centered around journals "Der Sturm", "Die Aktion", and "Menschen", or groups such as the Expressionistische Arbeitsgemeinschaft and the November-Gruppe. Besides, the artist was an engaged member of the Communist Party and contributed to several leftist magazines. After 1933, his art was defined as "degenerate" by the Third Reich regime, consequently removed from museum and public collections, and included in the exhibition "Entartete Kunst" in Munich (1937). Half a century later, his work has remained a subject to a number of shows, including "Art in Berlin 1815-1989" (1989) at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, and "Degenerate Art. The Fate of the Avant-Garde in Nazi Germany" (1991) displayed in Los Angeles and Chicago. The latest retrospectives of his work were held at the Ernst Barlach Haus in Hamburg (2013), Museum Gunzenhauser in Chemnitz (2012), and the Lindenau Museum in Altenburg (2009).
