Ernst Klinger (German 1900-1962)

Klinger was a leading member of the 20th Century Munich School. Klinger's New Objectivity works are stylistically characterised by a simplified composition, sharp outlines and a thin, dry use of oil paints. He combines isolated motives in an interaction that adds an allegorical narrative to the scene depicted. In 1939 Klinger moved to New York and gradually progressed to Abstraction. His abstract works from the 1940s and 1950s are lyrical in style and burst with colour.
