Paul Wunderlich (1927 - 2010)
German painter and printmaker Paul Wunderlich was born in Eberswalde and studied at the Art School at Eutin Castle in Schleswig-Holstein, and studied graphic art at the Hochschule fur Bildende Kunste in Hamburg, extending his training by another semester to work under Willem Gremm. In 1951 he was offered a teaching post at the school, which he held until 1961. During this period he studied with both Emil Nolde and Oskar Kokoschka. In 1963 he became Professor for the Graphic Arts and Painting. His realist approach of his early prints gave way to Fantastic Realism in a series of works whose frank eroticism provoked strong controversy at the time. Wunderlich has exhibited his paintings and prints worldwide. He was the recipient of numerous awards. His work is held in many private and institutional collections. He died in Provence.
