Fritz Asher (1893 - 1970) belongs to Germany’s “Lost Generation” artists whose careers were interrupted or destroyed by the Nazi terror regime and whose works remain under-recognized. Comprising some 75 paintings and works on paper, “Fritz Ascher: Expressionist” is the first American solo retrospective to showcase this artist’s bold, colorful oeuvre, which features early academic studies and figural compositions as well as late mystical landscapes devoid of human presence.
