"Life is glow"

The Expressionist Fritz Ascher

The artist Fritz Ascher (1893-1970) spent almost his entire life in Berlin. In paintings, graphics and poems he developed his own unique, expressionistic language of colour and form. The Fritz Ascher Society, founded in New York, dedicates a comprehensive retrospective to his work for the first time, which will be shown in Berlin (Museum Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf) and Potsdam (Potsdam Museum) from December 2017.

Address

Museum Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf in der Villa Oppenheim

Schloßstraße 55 A 14059 Berlin


In Villa Oppenheim, Ascher's late work is the focus of attention: in the Grunewald, Ascher had survived the Second World War in hiding, and after 1945 he lived there, largely withdrawn from the world and society. Personally, but also artistically, the years of Nazi terror marked a clear break for ashtrays. Neither thematically nor in pictorial language could he draw on his earlier works. Instead, impressive landscape and nature studies were carried out until the 1960s.
