Fritz Ascher: Expressionist<br/>January 9–April 6, 2019

Fritz Ascher: Expressionist presents works by this German Jewish artist, who lived through the Weimar Republic, the Nazi regime, and into the postwar years. After studying with Max Liebermann and Lovis Corinth in Berlin, Fritz Ascher (1893–1970) traveled to Oslo, where he met Edvard Munch, and Munich, where he associated with the artists of the Blue Rider and Simplicissimus groups. His early work is steeped in old myths, spirituality, and reflections on the human condition. From 1933 he was forbidden to produce, exhibit, or sell his art.
