This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Elke Sommer was born in Berlin, Germany on November 5, 1940.  Sommer began painting watercolors as a teenager.  While vacationing in Italy, she won a beauty title (“Miss Viareggio Turistica”) which caught the attention of film director, Vittorio De Sica who cast her in his films.  She became a sex symbol in Europe and by the early 1960s she was working in films in Hollywood.  When not working in movies and television she painted as a hobby. 

In 1965 she held her first one-woman show at the McKenzie Galleries in Beverly Hills.  Her paintings appear to be inspired by the works of Marc Chagall.  Since 1993 she has been the wife of hotelier Wolf Walther.
