Born in Regensburg, artist Adolf Oberlander spend the majority of his life in Munich where he studied classical painting at The Munich Academy. After discovering that painting wasn’t his forte, the German artist quickly found solace in the art of caricatures and became a highly sought after cartoon and comic drawer for newspapers.
Oberlander’s drawings are simple and elegant, using expressive lines, rather than the aid of written line, to create his masterpieces. Among some of his best works are humorous drawings that are a parody on the style of well-known painters and narratives that speak on the subjects of mythology, fairy lore, fables, animal life and the every-day habits of the German middle class.
His works today can be found in galleries in Munich, Berlin and Dresden, and in various private collections in Germany.
