Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Felix Nussbaum (11 December 1904 - 2 August 1944) was a German surrealist painter.Nussbaum was born in Osnabr ck, Province of Hanover, as the son of Rahel and Philipp Nussbaum. Philipp was a World War I veteran and German patriot before the rise of the Nazis. He was an amateur painter when he was younger, but was forced to pursue other means of work for financial reasons. He therefore encouraged his son's artwork passionately.Nussbaum was a lifelong student, beginning his formal studies in 1920 in Hamburg and Berlin and continuing as long as the current political situation allowed him. In his earlier works, Felix was heavily influenced by Vincent Van Gogh and Henri Rousseau and he eventually pays homage to Giorgio de Chirico and Carlo Carr as well. Carl Hofer's expressionist painting influenced Felix's careful approach to color.show more
