Paul Wunderlich, born in 1927 in Eberswalde and died in 2010 in Saint-Pierre-de-Vassols, was a German artist who worked in painting, sculpture and graphics. In his work, in the manner echoing pittura metafisica or surrealism, the artist referred to art history in general, generously re-working the classic motifs of the School of Fontainebleau or Manet's "The Luncheon on the Grass" and "Olympia". Wunderlich was educated at the Landeskunstschule in Hamburg (1947-51), where at once he started to lecture (1951-60), After the interval between 1960 and 1963 when he lived in Paris, back in Hamburg, he was appointed professor of Free Painting and Graphics at the University of Arts (1963-8). There Wunderlich met Karin Székessy, his muse and life partner, with whom he collaborated until his death. Wunderlich started to exhibit in the late 40s, and quickly did he gain the international recognition with shows in Kushiro City Art Gallery (1955) and Contemporary Arts Museum in Houston (1956). Later on, his works were included in exhibitions such as the Documenta in Kassel (1964), "Painting after Photography" (1970) at the Stadtmuseum in Munich, and "After Surrealism - Metaphors and Similes" (1972) at the State Art Museum in Sarasota. More recently, his lithographies were on view at the retrospective at the Hamburger Kunsthalle (2012).
