Biography   Wols


Wols (1913-1951)

Wols was born as Alfred Otto Wolfgang Schulze in Berlin in 1913 and is today considered one of the more important modern artists.  He moved to Dresden with his family in 1919, where he discovered his lively interest in painting in 1927. He was impressed above all by Paul Klee, Otto Dix and George Grosz.

The artist began an apprenticeship as a photographer in 1930 and attended classes at the Reiman-Schule, the Berlin school of applied arts.  Moholy-Nagy advised Wols, who had applied at the Bauhaus*, to go to Paris.  Here he painted and worked as a portrait photographer and a German teacher.  He was given his first large commission as a photographer in 1937 at the Paris World Exhibition.
