Adolf Wissel (19 April 1894 – 17 November 1973) was a German painter. He was one of the attributed artists of Nazism.

Wissel, who was born in Velber, was a painter in the genre of Nazi folk art, the idea being that these paintings should performance the simple, natural activity of a farming family. The phrase ‘union subsequent to the soil’ best describes the subject of his art. Wissel idealised crop growing life for predominantly urban viewers. Exhibitions of paintings of this genre were intended to produce a result the peasants and operational class that they were just as great as the wealthy, and that they too deserved a easygoing life. These paintings were share of the Nazis’ ‘blood and soil’ campaign, designed to join the ideas of health, family and motherhood subsequently the country. Wissel painted many pictures such as these, but his put-on contains subtle distortions and accentuations influenced by expressionism.

He died in Velber in 1973.
