„Fritz Ascher: Expressionist“

The Nazi regime forbade the Jewish artist Fritz Ascher (1893-1970) to paint, so he resorted to pen and paper. The Fritz Ascher Society and the Gray Art Gallery at NYU are presenting pictures and poems by the German-Jewish expressionist persecuted by the National Socialists. The exhibition will be accompanied by discussions of Ascher’s work and its historical context. The exhibition opens on January 8, 2019.
