The German painter, printmaker, photographer, author and illustrator Kurt Wendlandt was among one of the most creative artists of postwar West Germany. Since his studies at the State Academy of the Arts 1937-43, his artistic development was continuously interrupted, also due to a war injury. After the war he finally was able to work again and he began experimenting with many transparent materials; in 1958 he produced his first Lichtgraphiken. Heinz Hajek-Halke was a close friend and both artitsts were part of the avantgarde "Lichtgraphik" scene of Berlin in the 1960s. Because Wendlandt neglected his commercial promotion, his photographs are hardly known. Nevertheless his light graphics and other works can be found in many museums and collections today. – A few small handling marks, otherwise in very good condition.
Provenance: The estate of Kurt Wendlandt.
