Oskar Schlemmer, (1888 - 1943) was a German painter, sculptor, choreographer, and designer known for his abstract, yet precise art prints of the human form, as well as for his avant-garde ballet production. His work was a rejection of pure abstraction, instead retaining a sense of the human, though not in the emotional sense but in view of the physical structure of the human. He represented bodies as architectural forms, reducing the figure to a rhythmic play between convex, concave and flat surfaces. As well as leaving a large body of work behind, Oskar Schlemmer art theories have also been published. A comprehensive book of his letters and diary entries from 1910 to 1943 is also available.
