Biography from Carlisle Gallery:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

David Schneuer was born in 1905 in Austro-Hungary.  After graduating from the Münchner Künstgewerbeschule (Munich, Germany), he moved to Paris.  He was an authentic witness to life in Europe between the World Wars and was greatly influenced by German Expressionism.

In the 1920s he worked as a stage designer and poster artist for Bertold Brecht in theaters in Berlin and Munich, a world which was dominated by the influences of Kirchner, Grosz, and Beckmann.  In 1932, he was imprisoned in Dachau as an artistic dissident.

Upon his release the following year, he immigrated to Palestine and settled in Tel Aviv. There his paintings, posters, and public murals were received with great enthusiasm. The same motifs he had employed earlier under Brecht - subtle eroticism, sensuous characters, and virtuoso drawing - found expression in his paintings.

Schneuer died in November 1987.

Biography from a third party submitted on 07/09/2006:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

David Schneuer was probably the last German post impressionist.  Growing up in Germany in the beginning of the century left its mark on all his work as did living in Paris for some time as a young man.  Doing stage design and posters for the Munich Theatre was the continuation of his career.  In 1933 Schneuer immigrated to Palestine and became one of the founders of the advertising industry.  Till the end of his life, his work was a kind of nostalgia for Europe of the 1920's and early 30's.  Following Schneuer's lead, many contemporary artists started to paint and to print art that very closely resembled Schneuer's images.
