Goethe Pop Up Houston: Exhibition "Field Postcards" by Otto Schubert

Deployed to the Western Front at the onset of the First World War, Otto Schubert (b. 1892, Dresden, DE) painted some ninety military-issued Feld­postkarten. Mostly addressed to his sweetheart, Irma, these miniature 4” x 6” works of art not only served as affectionate correspondences back home but also as a creative outlet for a young de­termined art student-turned-soldier who soundly recognized the importance of visually capturing what was an incomprehensible war.
A selection of prints of Schubert’s field postcards is on display until February 22, 2019.
