After about 1920, Schad had settled on a hard-edge style of painting that included a slight degree of form and surface simplification and caricature. But nothing so extreme so as to fall into the Nazis' "degenerate art" category. What Schad did do was inject elements and juxtapositions into some of his paintings that made them what we now call "edgy." Today a number of American representational painters depict scenes with similar elements, though without modernist distortions.
Below are examples of Schad's portrait painting, which actually was pretty much all he did when not involved in photography.
Marcella Arcangeli was Schad's first wife.
Bettina became Schad's second wife.
