Due date: October 2016. Publisher's description: German-born artist Adolf Fleischmann (1892-1968) was a celebrated abstract painter in the US from the 1950s through the 1960s. He emigrated to the US in 1952 after struggling to survive as an artist through two world wars. In celebration of his rich career, over 100 paintings spanning a 30-year period are beautifully illustrated for the first time in the retrospective catalog and exhibition at Daimler, Berlin (2016), which pairs his New York period (1952-65) with the European works he produced throughout the 1940s. A definitive essay by curator Renate Wiehager contextualizing his work in the American abstract painting scene is followed by several contemporaneous articles discussing the reception of Fleischmann's work in the US and Europe in the 1950s and 1960s. Rounding out the chronology and bibliography are extensive installation shots from the expansive retrospective. His work resides in collections including the Fogg Art Museum at Harvard, MoMA NY, The Whitney, Grey Art Gallery, NY U, and throughout Europe.
