BERNHARD KRETZSCHMAR (1889-1972) AUSSTELLUNG ILLUSTRIERTER ZEIT SCHRIFTEN. 1919. 26 1/2x20 1/2 inches, 67 1/4x52 cm. Condition B+: creases and abrasions in margins and image. Hand-signed by the artist in pencil. Kretschmar was a painter who went through several prominent artistic phases. He began as an Expressionist, but in 1920, he destroyed all of his work and moved on to New Objectivity. In the 1930s, he was listed as an "entartete" artist by the Nazi regime, and as a result, most of his paintings were destroyed during the bombing of Dresden. After the war he became a professor at the Dresden Academy of Arts, during which time he continued to paint. This is one of two posters produced by the artist for this exhibition on illustrated magazines of the day, each accomplished in a light expressionist manner. LACMA M.2003.115.2.
