Degenerate Art

Franz Sedlacek (1891 – 1945) was an Austrian painter who belonged to the tradition known as "New Objectivity" ("neue Sachlichkeit"), an artistic movement similar to Magical Realism. At the end of the Second World War he "disappeared" as a soldier of the Wehrmacht somewhere in Poland.

Interesting. And while it's not quite the same, for whatever reason this post inspired me to put something together about Mati Klarwein, but I see someone did that awhile back.

Excellent. I love The Moon Calf, 1936 and I'm going to print it and hang it up.

I wonder if he used to paint after using, because his works remind me of Witkacy, who experimented with peyotl and other stuff.
