Before the advent of National Socialism in Germany Buchheister worked in a Constructivist mode. After a long interruption in his career he returned to art after the war. In his later years Buchheister worked principally on paper and developed a linear and calligraphic style very much in tune with the International tendency towards 'Informal' styles.
