About the Artist
Richard Lindner was born in 1901 in Hamburg, Germany to an American mother and a German father. He spent his childhood in Nuremberg. He studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich.
Lindner moved to Berlin in 1927. Aside from a year spent in Munich as an art director of a publishing firm, he remained in Berlin until 1933. When the Nazis took power, he fled to Paris, where he was employed as a commercial artist, and befriended French fine artists.
Imprisoned when the war broke out in 1939, Linder later served in the French army to prove his loyalty. In 1941 he emigrated to America. He worked in New York as an illustrator and affiliated with New York artists and German emigrants. In 1948 he became an American citizen.
Lindner began painting in earnest in 1952. He taught at the Pratt Institute, Brooklyn from 1952 to 1967, and at Yale University School of Art and Architecture, New Haven from 1967. He served as a guest professor at the Academy of Fine Arts, Hamburg in 1965.
