Biography

As a representative of expressive realism Fritz Heinsheimer was a master scholar of German painter Max Slevogt. Heinsheimer created paintings on World War I, landscapes, portraits and sports images (boxers, runners, high jumpers and cyclists). At the age of just 18, he became a soldier in World War I and was severely wounded at Verdun. After the war, he studied at fine arts academies in München, Karlsruhe and Berlin. In 1931, he travelled to Java and was inspired to paint exotic worlds of images. He was Protestant, but of Jewish descent, and was banned from working in 1933, although he was still able to use his studio. In 1942 Heinsheimer fled to Brittany and then survived as “Alsatian” under the pseudonym Fernand Husser in Paris. After the war he lived and worked in Wiesbaden. His later works were barely influenced by the developments in international art and comprised melancholic landscapes of Southwest Germany.
