Fritz Zalisz is an exponent of Leipzig expressionism and belonged to the group of artists who have become
known as the “missing persons” generation (verschollene Generation.) He lived from 1939
in Südstrasse in Zuckelhausen which was renamed after him in 2001. Son of the goldsmith and jeweler
Josef Zalisz, Fritz Zalisz studied under A. v. Hildebrand in Munich before military service in the
first world war where he served as a war artist. Afterwards he was a pupil of the Academy Leipzig.
Zalisz worked often in portraiture with wide brush strokes, and was well known for his graphic works.
