Edmund D. Kinzinger: The Early Years 1913-1935 by Professor Philip Van Keuren
This essay was first published in the catalogue which accompanied the exhibition Edmund D. Kinzinger: The Early Years 1913-1935, The Gallery, Hughes-Trigg Student Center, Southern Methodist University, Dallas, Texas, USA, 16 August - 20 September 1992, curated by Professor Philip Van Keuren.
An abbreviated version of the essay was published as catalogue notes to the exhibition Edmund Kinzinger, Cubist and Other Works: 1910-50, The Art Center, Waco, Texas, USA, 5 December 1992 - 14 February 1993, curated by Joseph L. Kagle.
The full essay is published here in recognition of the significant place Edmund Kinzinger held in Flora Scales's development as a modernist, made clear in her sketchbooks and lecture notes from the early 1930s. Their mutual respect and friendship can be deduced from the gift he made her in around 1933, a lively, collage-like coloured drawing.
So little is known of Kinzinger's life and art. We are proud to present a contribution to the current state of research.
