POP ART BY

RICHARD LINDNER
SIGNED AND NUMBERED ORIGINAL PRINTS

MISS AMERICAN INDIAN

Born in Hamburg, Germany, Lindner enrolled in the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich in 1925 to study the visual arts. An art director with the Nazi-associated publisher Knorr and Hirth, Lindner fled Germany the day after the Nazis came to power. Briefly imprisoned in Paris, he escaped, serving in the French and British armies. He arrived in New York City in 1941, and worked as a magazine illustrator for Vogue, Fortune and Harper's Bazaar. It was in 1952 that Lindner decided to devote more time to the visual arts.

His works have been described by art critics as "mechanistic cubism." Infused with personal imagination, his style has overtones of the "Cabaret-Berlin" culture of the 30's, with flat areas of often garish colors, separated by highly defined edges. His subjects, too, seem to come from that era. His women, archetypal in this respect, are often corseted, erotically drawn in a garish and generic, rather than individuated way. Streetwalkers, continental circus women, and men in uniforms populate the Lindner landscape. He taught at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn from 1952 to 1965.

Lindner created most of the art graphics seen here in our atelier in New York in 1973 and kept our staff very busy bringing him a large limestone slab for each color he wanted in his ongoing creative effort. Some of the art graphics on this page required over 16 stones and each had to be delivered to him in the studio we provided for him by a large fork lift since the stones were approximately
45"x 35"x 6" and weighed over 500 pounds each.

Lindner is also considered a Pop artist and his visual arts consisting of oil paintings, gouaches and art graphics are in major museum collections as well as private collections throughout the world providing beautiful home decor wall art for their owners.

Richard Lindner died in 1978.
