Hermann Gl ckner (21 January 1889 - 25 May 1987) was a German painter and sculptor. He was an important representative of constructivism. Gl ckner was born in Dresden-Cotta. He attended the vocational school in Leipzig in 1903 and worked as a designer for textiles. From 1904 to 1911 he attended the evening classes at the Kunstgewerbeschule Dresden, where he became friends with Kurt Fiedler. Among their lectures were Oskar Seyffert and Carl Rade, who later was a renowned professor at the Dresden Academy of Fine Arts and remained a friend of Gl ckner for many years. Gl ckner was mainly interested in drawings, but also in projections and geometry. From 1914 to 1918 he served in infantry divisions in France, Russia, and Poland. After World War I Gl ckner earned some money with the copying of paintings for the Gem ldegalerie Alte Meister. At the Dresden Academy of Fine Arts he studied with Otto Gussmann from 1923 to 1924. Hans Grundig was among his fellow students. His experimental style, however, did not find everyone's appreciation and Gl ckner left the academy again. As a freelancer he turned to constructivism ever deeper during the following years.show more
