Oskar Fischinger (22 June 1900 — 31 January 1967) was a German-American abstract animator, filmmaker, and painter. He made over 50 short animated films, and painted c. 800 canvases, many of which are in museums, galleries and collections worldwide. Among his film works is Motion Painting No. 1 (1947), which is now listed on the National Film Registry of the U. S. Library of Congress.
A great deal of inaccurate information continues to be published about Fischinger, largely taken from decades-old sources, often repeated in online databases. While much new research has been achieved, and new information and materials are available, too many authors seem to continue to depend on some older material containing inaccuracies, e.g. William Moritz's Film Culture essay from the 1970s, and Optische Poesie, 1993.
