On this page works are presented that show my development in art. They are not necessarily listed in chronological order, but they do document the time periods quite well.
Portrait of a Chinese Girl
The newly developed style in landscape painting was also used for portraits and ened in a series of some 20 works.
After copying old Chinese masters first steps to develope new works were made.
Traditional Chinese Landscape
Of course, every painter, whether in the West or in China, has to develop his own style sooner or later. However, in order to understand Chinese painting, it is essential to copy the old masters in painting and calligraphy. Above all, in order to become familiar with the technique and composition of the important painters.
Portrait of a Chinese Peasant
This portrait of a Chinese farmer was made in Beijing in 1981. I had already worked a lot with Chinese painting techniques and tried to integrate them into western graphics.
Passers-by watch football in a shop window
In 1978, certainly strongly influenced by the painter Georg Eisler, I began to do graphics using oil pastels.
This image shows people watching a soccer game in front of a television set.
Saint Maria della Salute in Venice
1976 was out of the year I started sketching all over the place when I was out and about. Like in Venice, which I visited several times in the 1970-80s. At a time when it wasn’t overrun by tourists.
Collage with snippets from old prints, mostly around 1900. A series of lithographs was made from this collage. Edition of 90 pieces.
Not only was the title forgotten, the entire edition was also lost. (2-3 sheets still exist).
