Oskar Fischinger (1900-1967), the German-born pioneer of abstract animation, was a formidable influence in Germany and continues to assert considerable interest today. Generations of artists and film makers in Germany and the U.S. have been influenced through their study of Fischinger's abstract films. Their mesmerizing and lyrical qualities have sustained through time with considerable freshness and poignancy. In his paintings, he distilled these same meditative qualities.
A series of 52 works, drawings and paintings, some from the early Berlin years, will be shown at the Goethe-Institut Washington following this significant exhibition's opening in Los Angeles at Jack Rutberg Fine Arts, agents for the Estate of Oskar Fischinger. The exhibition was curated by art critic Peter Frank.
On view until October 26, 2005.
