Please join us as we kick off an epic exploration of the work and life of Otto Neumann
Otto Neumann’s (1895, Heidelberg - 1975, Munich) early work as an Expressionist painter and master printmaker, evolved over 60 years. Neumann survived the Third Reich in Germany with his wife Hilde Rothschild, who was Jewish. Neighbors protected the couple, though they suffered and his art was labeled “degenerate”* by the Nazis (an automatic honorific). Neumann's work is imbued with a rare and strange intensity. In two major exhibitions, over 150 works and artifacts will be exhibited, complimented by receptions, lectures and tours.
