Friedrich experimented with many styles and techniques, starting with watercolour abstracts on paper in the 1940's and 50s.  His main body of paintings are acrylic on board and numerous acrylic on lamininate faces - these are already well represented on this website under the Exhibitions tab, particulary the Paul Smith and Zetter hotel pages.  You will find examples of acrylic paintings on ceramic plates on the England Galleries page.

Here we are showing the more unusual paintings, that haven't been exhibited, as yet.  Above you see an acrylic on board styalised lady, perhaps following the theme of birds of paradise - so a lady of paradise?

Below are examples of acrylic on perspex pictures that appear to have a Christian theme.  Also a very large acrylic on board painting which has been referred to as the Three Kings, however two of the 'kings' look very feminine - ahead of its time?


Acrylic on perspex religeous scene

Religeous icon

Acrylic on perspex likely depicting a Christian theme


Styalised donkeys, acrylic on perspex. A recurring Friedrich theme with religeous connotations; he also empathised with donkeys/ asses

Three Kings?

Largest acrylic on board painting (90 x 75cm), likely religeous in inspiration.

Friedrich Nagler: Acrylic on glossy paper, postcard size

Friedrich created literally hundreds of postcard size acrylic painting of faces on postcard-size reclaimed glossy paper. He may have used some of these designs on his larger acrylic on board paintings.

Here the cards have been arranged in groups of x6 and x18 of these groups have been used to create an animated slideshow; please click the image on the right to see it.

Friedrich Nagler: Acrylic on Plates

Friedrich liked buying cheap plates from junk shops and then painting on them, as the slideshow to the right illustrates.
