Two relevant points on Felix NussbaumKs artistic career are the relationship he established with many major German contemporary artists as well as the debate he had with Italian art. (e artworks of Neue Sachlichkeit as well as the Metafisica and Novecento movements – which he first encountered in Rome between 1932 and 1933 – influenced his style.
