German artist Fritz Winter studied at Bauhaus in Dessau. In particular, Paul Klee had a great influence on the education of the post-war artist, but the student turned away from the strict formal language at an early stage. His abstract art, which is sometimes experimental and circular, was diffamated among the Nazis.

Today, Winter is considered one of the most important representatives of post-modernism. Winter was a founding member of the group “ZEN 49”, a member of the German Artists' Federation, taught as an art professor and took part in documenta 1 in Kassel. ” Drivers of the Earth”, which the painter made in 1944 after many years of captivity to war, is considered to be key works of post-war art.
