Weltflucht und Moderne. Oskar Zwintscher in the Art around 1900 in the Albertinum
Hardly any other important German artist from the period around 1900 waited longer for a fundamental reassessment than Oskar Zwintscher (1870-1916). Important stations in his career were Dresden, Meissen, Munich, Vienna and Worpswede. With unusual pictures and the “fairy-tale dark, morbid glow of his metallic cool colour games” (Egbert Delpy), Zwintscher achieved great recognition during his lifetime, but also experienced fierce rejection.
