• With essays by Florian Illies and Dirk Boll • Extensive catalogue of August Deusser's work
The painter, collector, and arts advocate August Deusser helped to blaze the trail for nascent Modernism in the Rhineland. Becoming known on the French avant-garde art scene early on, he began advocating for the renewal of painting in early twentieth-century Germany, as the founder of secessionist art associations. He and Julius Bretz, Max Clarenbach, Walter Ophey, and Wilhelm Schmurr founded the Sonderbund (special alliance) in Düsseldorf, whose exhibitions created a furor. As a painter, he had a fondness for motifs of horses or riders; later, he turned to realistically oriented landscapes and portrait painting. The catalogue shows August Deusser's development as an artist, with a focus on the years 1908 to 1912, which were of particular importance to the painter and arts advocate. Besides essays, the volume also contains reproductions of works by the co-founders of the Sonderbund. After apprenticing as a decorative painter, August Deusser (18701942) studied at the Düsseldorf Kunstakademie, where he also held a special professorship from 191724. His marriage to the painter Elisabeth Eugenie Albert made him financially independent, enabling him to take up arts advocacy.
