Adolf Luther Adolf Luther - Biography
Adolf Luther counts among the most important German artists of the second half of the 20th century. The trained jurist should unfold his artistic talent merely from an auto-didactic training. In general, the permanent potential for artistic renewal and the incessant quest for means of artistic expression are among Adolf Luther's most striking characteristics. While serving in World War II, Adolf Luther began to make drawings. Afterwards his range of artistic rendering reached from Cubist works over expressive art that followed the Informel, to paintings with pastose colors. In the following years, as of around the 1960s, he made impressive glass-, mirror-, light- and laser objects, which, on the one hand, play with the observer's perception and can be ascribed to Op Art accordingly, on the other hand they are close to Concrete Art, because of their seriality. The Adolf-Luther-Foundation, which was called to life by the artist, conserves the remarkable oeuvre of Adolf Luther, which is also represented in renowned collections. Additionally, the foundation supports young artists .
