BIOGRAFIE

1923als Sohn eines deutschen Vaters und einer russischen Mutter in Washington, D.C. geboren

1941 - 1948studierte er Mathematik und Chemie an der Cornell University, Ithaca, im Bundesstaat New York (USA)

1942 - 1946absolvierte er seinen Militärdienst bei der US-amerikanischen Armee in Europa

1948BA, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY

1950 - 1952studierte Artschwager an der Amedée-Ozenfant-Studio-School in New York. Anschließend verdiente er sein Geld mit der Herstellung von Möbeln

1962wandte sich Artschwager verstärkt einer eigenen Kunstproduktion zu, die sich jeder eindeutigen Zuordnung verweigerte und die die Gattungszugehörigkeit seiner Werke bewusst unterlief.
Seine der Minimal Art verbundenen bildhauerischen Arbeiten und seine an den Hyperrealismus erinnernde Malerei entwickelte er dabei nahezu parallel.

1963fertigte er u. a. Claes Oldenburgs Bedroom Ensemble (jetzt im Museum für Moderne Kunst, Frankfurt am Main)

2013gestorben in Albany, NY
