Google with a doodle celebrates the 130th birth anniversary of German painter, sculptor, designer and choreographer Oskar Schlemmer on 4th September 2018. Google doodle marks an artistic search logo written Google on it with his sketch painting.
Oskar Schlemmer was born on 4th September 1888 in Stuttgart, German Empire. He died on 13 April 1943 (aged 54 years) Baden-Baden, Nazi Germany.
Oskar Schlemmer was associated with the Bauhaus school of art and is most vividly remembered for his “Triadisches Ballet” where the performers are seen converting into geometrical figurines from normal beings.
Oskar Schlemmer ideas were complicated and hard to decipher. He infamously rejected the absolute abstract and brought about a sensuous human touch to his near-to-abstract characters and subjects.
Oskar Schlemmer vested in the divine architectural aspect of the human body by capturing each and every possible movement into his vast repertoire of art. His stream of consciousness dwelled in the realm of the human body and the space around it so as to catch the subtle nuances in their “party of form and color”.
Oskar Schlemmer described any performance to be “artistic metaphysical mathematics” which is purest in the form of physical aesthetics and not residing much in the cosmos of emotions.
Oskar Schlemmer once described the themes of his work: “the human figure in space, its moving and stationary functions, sitting, lying, walking, standing” as being “as simple as they are universally valid.”
