EXPO
Christian Schad (1894-1982), Germany
Retrospective

I didn't know much about Schad, but I
was really impressed by the hypnotizing
eyes observing you from the canvas.
Schad knew different styles. He was
influenced 
 by painters like Kokoschka
and
Kandinsky and painted his first
expressionistic
painting in Volendam in
1914.

Cubism, realism, magic realism, he tried
them all, probably because of lack of
commercial successes.
However his New Objectivity period is
most seen in his works  and at this expo.

Schad also created his Schadography:
simply
contour pictures and text on photo
paper.
