Paul Wunderlich

Paul Wunderlich was born in Germany in 1927. He died in France in 2010. Wunderlich's prolific works in paitings, lithography and sculpture are linked to the second generation of Fantastic Realists, sometimescalled Magical Realists, who were inspired by dream imagery. After Picasso and Max Ernst no other artist has contributed as much to the sculpture of painters as Wunderlich. The thematic for his sculptures and objects is closely linked to his paintings, drawings and lithographs. Wunderlich studied at the Hamburg Academy of Fine Art. He has been exhibited widely throughout the world. His work is included in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, New York, Museum of Modern Art, Philadelphia, Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco, Getty Museum, Hirshhorn Museum, Washington D.C., Victoria and Albert Museum, London, Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris, Musées des Beaux Arts, Brussels, Kunsthalle, Hamburg, Museum Ludwig, Köln, Museum Atheneum, Helsinki, Museum Boymans-van Beuningen, Rotterdam, Kamakura Museum of Sculpture, amongst others. Often borrowing from classical mythology, Wunderlich emphasized the human form within a context that blends together contemporary and historical references. With cool aloofness, he transports the viewer into a world of surreal eroticism, aesthetic symbolism and a dose of irony.
