Adolf Uzarski

German, 1885-1970

Adolf Uzarski was a German writer, artist and illustrator associated with the New Objectivity movement. He was born in Ruhrort bei Duisburg in 1885 and studied at the Cologne School of Architecture before enrolling in 1906 at the Düsseldorf School of Arts and Crafts. He exhibited in Berlin and Hagen in the years before World War I and also became a successful commercial artist. While directing the advertising department of the Tietz department store, in 1916–17 he produced the portfolio of lithographs, Totentanz (Danse Macabre - Dance of Death). Beginning in 1919, he exhibited with “Das Junge Rheinland,” of which he was a founding member. This stylistically diverse group, which also included Arthur Kaufmann and Herbert Eulenberg, was united only by their rejection of academic art. Active as a visual artist and also as a writer of poetry and fiction, Uzarski illustrated his books and those of others. During the Weimar years, he was one of the artists championed by the Düsseldorf art dealer Johanna Ey, until a rift between them in 1923, after which Uzarski left the Young Rhineland group to form the Rhein Gruppe, with whom he exhibited from 1925–30. His art was caricatural in style and sharply satirical of the bourgeoisie society. In 1942, condemned as a degenerate artist by the Nazis, he was forbidden to paint and went into hiding in Robertville, Belgium. At the end of World War II, Uzarski returned to Düsseldorf and continued his career. He was the subject of a retrospective exhibition at the Berlin Academy of Arts in 1967. Adolf Uzarski died in Düsseldorf in 1970.
