Adolf Fleischmann (1892-1968) was a major German abstract painter. His late work evolved into constructivism and he is considered a precursor of Op Art.
With outstanding loans from international museums and important private collections - including a number of works on public display for the first time - this major retrospective features around 60 paintings, collages and gouaches spanning three decades. It focuses specifically on Fleischmann's New York period (1952-1965) and on key works from the 1940s.
Part of Daimler Art Collection’s ‘Classical: Modern’ series, this retrospective is accompanied by Dieter Blum. Cowboys. The first shooting 1992.
