Biography photo for Willi Bauer

Willi Bauer was born on July 7, 1923 in a small village in Germany.  He studied under Professor Roth in Berlin and Professor Dellaville in Frankfurt.  His paintings can be found in many private collections in Europe and America.  He paints a wide range of subject matter capturing the same vibrancy and emotion of each scene.  He  takes a common subject and filters it through his artistic eye with his dynamic use of color and his keen sense of perspective and composition.

Biography from Southwest Gallery
For the last twenty years Willi Bauer has been reminding us of the richness and warmth of the German landscape.  He has developed a magical technique, all his own, but in the tradition of German Master Otto Pippel.  Bauer studied at the Staedel Academy of Art in Frankfurt under Professor Della Villa.

If one appreciates Willi Bauer's art, one must at least ask two questions:  How can we describe his style and how do we place his name in the history of world art?  Whereas his roots are German, his style is one of international acceptability.  His painting technique is a transition between rich impressionism and controlled expressionism. The brush strokes are handled in complete control to achieve the desired effect: namely, the effect of light itself.  This light that shines comes from the artist's own creativity and imagination.  It shines on those subjects dearest to the artist's heart: the people of Germany in the cafe gardens and flower markets, enjoying their way of life, in the rich beauty of their surroundings, involved in the traditional customs of their society; the strong Alps, the backbone of a strong people; the cold white winter; the house that stands alone; the reflections on a glassy lake.  In these images of German life are passions universal to all of us: the love of our surroundings and personal way of life.
