Sascha Schneider (1870-1927) was one of the more dazzling figures in the history of German art and culture, his monumental symbolist paintings evoking the zeitgeist at the turn of the nineteenth century. He is known primarely for his book covers he designed for his friend the writer Karl May. In 1919 Schneider founded the Kraft Kunst Institut in Dresden, where his paintings and sculptures were presented alongside the sports equipment and mirrors. Schneider thus made a vital contribution to the 'liberation' of the male nude in the early 20th century.
From 1904 till 1908 he was professor at the Weimar art academy.
