This monograph on the work of abstract painter and sculptor Otto Freundlich looks at the entirety of the artist’s career.

A German painter and sculptor of Jewish origin, Otto Freundlich was widely known in the art circles of his day. He was on close terms with the leading artists of Expressionism, Fauvism, Cubism, Orphism, Dada, Suprematism, De Stijl, Bauhaus, Constructivism, the Cologne Progressives, and ultimately with the abstractionists. While his work was influenced by artists of these movements, Freundlich created a unique body of work in his paintings, sculptures, mosaics, and stained glass.

This stunningly illustrated book follows the arc of Otto Freundlich’s life and work, and explores the development of his artistic and philosophical ideas.
