Biography Carl Jorres
Carl Jörres was born in Bremen in 1870. His painting career began in 1904, at the age of 34 years, when he attended a private art school in Munich, which was run by Moritz Heymann. At the same time he took lessons from Fritz Overbeck, a painter of the Worpswede artists' colony.
In 1913, he joined the 'Deutscher Künstlerbund' and in 1919, he became a member of the 'Bremer Künstlerbund' and 'Worpsweder Künstlervereinigung'. In comparison to other painters from Worpswede, Jörres used more bright than earthy colors. His motifs are primarily taken from his local area around Lilienthal, where he settled in 1918.
In 1937, three of his paintings were confiscated under the term 'Degenerate Art'. No
