FRITZ

KLEMM

1902 in Mannheim – 1990 in Karlsruhe

Fritz Klemm, who only became intensely artistically active in his mid-forties, created a distinctiveoeuvre, which in its increasing reduction, especially with the theme ‘wall’ (the representation of his studio wall), led him to almost abstract ‘painting’.He was already 68 years old when he found his way to those works which made him known to the public.

He used paper and paint as a subtle and almost poetic source material for collaged, graphic works. From the very beginning, drawing was his most importantmeans of artistic expression, with which he portrayed the objects of his immediate surroundings: tables, chairs, bowls, brushes or easels.
