Leopold SCHMUTZLER (German, 1864-1940) ✿

Leopold SCHMUTZLER (1864-1940) was a Bohemian-born German painter. He specialized in portraits, female figures, and Rococo-style genre scenes. In his later years, he became associated with the Nazi Party. His style was generally realistic with Art-Deco elements.
His association with the Nazi regime virtually destroyed his career outside Germany, and his posthumous reputation, although his works may still be seen at several museums, including the Frye Art Museum in Seattle whose founder, Charles Frye (1858–1940), was a great admirer of Schmutzler's pre–Nazi work.

Attimi sospesi
su una poetica culla
