Bernard Schultze (1915 - 2005)
Bernard Schultze was born in Schneidemühl in Western Prussia and began his art studies at the Berlin School for Art Education and at the Düsseldorf Art Academy. After military service, he resumed painting and his style became non-figurative and abstract. In the 1950s, Schultze participated in several avant-garde exhibitions and began to develop relief pictures featuring various materials applied to the surface of the canvas. New variants and hybrid works including very large paintings on panels continued to evolve. Bernard Schultze is considered a leading abstract artist of the past half-century. He died in Cologne.
