Adolf Richard Fleischmann Adolf Richard Fleischmann - Biography
Adolf Richard Fleischmann counts among the most important representatives of German geometric-abstract art. Born in the Swabian town of Esslingen, Adolf Richard Fleischmann completed his art studies in Stuttgart and created works in these days that showed strong academic notions, before more and more abstract tendencies would become obvious in the course of the 1920s. Interestingly, Adolf Richard Fleischmann developed from a geometric-abstract use of forms to an organic-abstract figuration in his paintings and graphic works since the 1930s. His late period of creation, as of the 1950s, however, is dominated by geometrical abstraction once more, at times he added corrugated cardboard to his works. With his serial arrangements he seemde to forebode the principles of Op Art in the 1960s. The innovative works by Adolf Richard Fleischmann are in possession of renowned museums, such as the 'Museum für Konkrete Kunst' in Ingolstadt or the Museum Folkwang in Essen.
