David Schneuer
Born in 1905 in Galicia, Poland, David Schneuer grew up in Munich. Upon graduation from school, he moved to Paris, where he associated with many artists whose works helped to define the Expressionist movement. Eventually, he returned to Munich and joined the staff of the Munchener Schauspiellerhaus, collaborating with such influential theatrical figures as Brecht in producing numerous stage designs and posters. The motifs of his theater work, exuberant and sensuous characters drawn with virtuosity and refined in subtle colors, are the foundation of his paintings. In 1933, he was arrested and imprisoned in Dachau as a cultural revolutionary. After his release, he immigrated to Palestine and settled in Tel Aviv, where he became immersed in painting. His stylized figures inhabiting the bars and cafes in his paintings were reminiscent of Munich and Paris in the 1920's, preserving German Expressionism at its best, alongside George Grosz and Beckman, and Kirchner. Schneuer's works can be found in permanent collections around the world including the Munchener Stadt Museum, Spertus Museum, Chicago, Boston Fine Art Museum, Vancouver Museum of Art, Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam, Tel Aviv Museum, the Israel Museum, Jerusalem, Vancouver Museum, the Bass Museum, Miami, and the Joensuu Art Museum, Finland.
