Oskar Schlemmer: Picture "The Dancer" (1922)

A famous unknown: Oskar Schlemmer

Oskar Schlemmer (1853-1943) was for a long time not comprehensively displayed and also scientific publications were difficult. The reason: Schlemmer's heirs of the second generation repeatedly took back items loaned to museums and even forbade reproductions This made a 'famous unknown" of the great Bauhaus artist. While individual works (such as these Bauhaus stairs) got iconic significance, another part of his works disappeared from the contemporary awareness. This changed only recently. The Stuttgarter Staatsgalerie dedicated to Schlemmer in 2014 a worldwide appreciated exhibition, whose catalogue could finally provide now - 70 years after his death - a comprehensive, richly illustrated presentation.

"I want to create human types, not portraits and portray the essence of a room and not interior" – in these short lines Oskar Schlemmer explained the essence of its art. His topic is the space as such and a human as such. It would be incorrect to see anonymized, even alienated people in these carefully composed mannequins. Not by coincidence they remind the archaic models which are worshipped by Schlemmer as the highest expression of human image.

For a long time Oscar Schlemmer wasn’t exhibited in the full. Any fundamental scientific researches on his works were almost impossible. The reason for that was Schlemmer’s heirs of the second generation who took pictures back from museums and forbade reproductions. This made the great Bauhaus artist “a famous incognito”. While some of his works obtained iconic meaning, the others vanished from the consciousness of modernity. Recently, the situation has changed. The Stuttgart City Galery dedicated prepare an exhibition of Schlemmer’s works that gained a worldwide respect. The catalog of the exhibition, issued 70 years after the artist’s death, contained a wide and richly illustrated presentation of his works
