Rudolf Schlichter

Rudolf Schlichter (1890-1955) was a German painter and graphic artist associated with the Neue Sachlichkeit (New Objectivity) movement of the Weimar Republic era.

Schlichter's art is characterized by his focus on the darker side of life, particularly the marginalized and dispossessed. His paintings often depicted prostitutes, beggars, and other social outcasts, and he was particularly interested in exploring the themes of poverty, loneliness, and despair.

Schlichter was also an accomplished graphic artist, creating woodcuts and lithographs that often featured stark, graphic images. He was a member of the Berlin Dada movement in the 1920s and was involved in the production of various avant-garde publications.
