Peter Paul

A famous contemporary German lithographer, etcher and painter, Peter Paul has established a strong reputation for his unique architectural imagery. He studied art in Berlin at the Institute of Fine Arts (1965-66) and in Hamburg (1966-69), under such modern masters as Paul Wunderlich, Allen Jones and David Hockney. Peter Paul then taught graphic art techniques at the Institute of Fine Arts, Hamburg, from 1969 to 1974. After 1974 Peter Paul traveled and worked in Italy, Ireland and the United States. He won the prestigious Prize of Rome in 1974 which enabled him to live and work in that city for a period of two years. Variation Serlio II was created by the artist at this time and published by Grafos Verlag in Germany in a signed, limited edition of seventy-five impressions as well as a handful of artist proofs (marked 'e. a.'). Peter Paul's first exhibition of architectural art took place in Berlin in 1971. Since that time his original lithographs and etchings have been frequently included in major American, German, French, Italian and Dutch exhibitions. A large retrospective of his art was held in 1991 at the Deutschland Kunstverein in Augsburg, Germany.
