German painter, sculptor and lithographer, Paul Wunderlich was born in 1927. He studied at the Hamburg Academy and, following a three-year stay in Paris, he returned to Hamburg to serve as Professor of Art at the Academy.
Wunderlich’s early works are in the abstract-figurative style. In the 1960s he adopted a more Symbolist style. He painted and printed numerous images taken from the photographs of his wife, Karin Szekessy. Wunderlich has received many international prizes, most notably for his accomplishments in color lithography. He has a vast oeuvre of prints, paintings, sculpture, jewelry and furniture designs. Wunderlich has completed renditions after classics by such artists as Dürer, Ingres and Rembrandt.
