Biography from Auctionata:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Willi Oltmanns first completed an apprenticeship as a decorator. At the age of 18 he started working as a painter in the artists' colony Schreiberhau and became a member of the artist society 'St. Lukas'.  In the late 1920s he traveled to Berlin, where he visited Max Pechstein in his studio.  Upon his return, he created numerous works influenced by Expressionism.  The museums in Breslau and Görlitz acquired some of his paintings.

From 1937 onwards Oltmanns was banned from exhibiting and worked primarily as a stage designer.  Finally, he moved to Delmenhorst where he also worked in the field of applied arts and designed murals and stained glass windows.  n 1951, the artist regularly participated in the 'Große Münchner Kunstausstellung' in the Haus der Kunst in Munich.  During this creative phase, his works were strongly influenced by the art of Max Beckmann and he created numerous watercolors in addition to his oil paintings.  The artist extensively traveled through Europe and the Orient.

Willi Oltmann's painterly work, which encompasses landscapes, portraits and still lives, is characterized by an energetic, gestural manner of painting and an expressive color effect.
