The painter and graphic artist Klaus Fussmann, born in 1938, is one of the first contemporary artists in Germany. He made his name as a painter of landscapes, still lifes and flowers, which impress with colorfulness and expressive, almost abstract shapes. He offers a subjective, emotional view of nature, for which he says "If it is accurate, it is infinitely boring."
His works include impasto painted oil paintings as well as etchings, lithographs, linocuts, and watercolors. In his pictures, Klaus Fussmann rediscovers the shape of the flowers and landscapes - as in fleeting dreams in which clear structures and outlines merge together, he models a real thrill of flowers using the splendor of the colors: "No ink is as blue as the larkspur and no fire as red as the geranium. "
The artist got the place for residence on the Baltic Sea where he could capture their liveliness of landscapes on paper. His gouaches are in the tradition of Emil Nolde, and Lovis Corinth, with stems or flower, stems completely submerged in Fussmann's imposing form in the sea of flowers.
Many renowned art houses exhibit his works, in 1996 Fussmann was the first artist to exhibit at the Federal Chancellery in Bonn. From 1974 to 2005 he was a professor at the Berlin University of the Arts.
