Collection: Adolf Fleischmann   1892 - 1968 

Adolf Richard Fleischmann (1892 - 1968) was a German abstract painter. His late work evolved into constructivism; he is considered a precursor of Op Art. In 1921, Fleischmann participated in the exhibition of the New Munich Secession. Here he was particularly inspired by Franz Marc and other Expressionists. As a result, he drew expressionist paintings.

From 1933 to 1936, he spent a long time in Mallorca and Paris. Since he was now producing abstract painting, he avoided a possible confrontation with the National Socialist regime by moving to France. In Paris, he joined the "Équipe" group. In this way he met influential artists, such as Robert Delaunay and Albert Gleizes.
