August Wilhelm Dressler

August Wilhelm Dressler (19. Dezember 1886 Bettelgrün, Böhmen – 8. Mai 1970 Berlin, Germany) war ein deutscher Maler of the Neuen Sachlichkeit.

He is known for his women’s portraits and acts.

From 1934 onwards, Dressler taught at the Staatsschule Berlin, from which, however, he was excluded by the Nazis as a “degenerate artist” in 1938.

Many of his paintings were lost during World War II. After 1945, Dressler repeated some of his earlier works by means of photographs.
