Fritz Levedag, ‘Pears in a Basket’, 1936, Childs Gallery

About Fritz Levedag

Having studied at the Bauhaus and worked as an assistant to Walter Gropius, Fritz Levedag synthesized the styles of a range of fellow Bauhaus artists in his crayon, watercolor, and graphite works. Levedag was both a student and friend to Paul Klee and Wassily Kandinsky, and his art was influenced by the stark, geometric forms of Kandinsky and the gentle color harmonies of Klee. The artist switched between depicting figural and abstract block-like forms, but he always employed proportion as a binding factor. As a result, his compositions appear spontaneous yet balanced.

German, 1899-1951
