Hans Reichel (1892-1958)

He was born in Würzburg on August 9, 1892, during a time that was marked by artistic revolutions, war and social unrest.

A writer as well as a painter, Reichel earned his living by writing small feature articles, becoming acquainted with famed poet Rainer Maria Rilke, whose poetic mysticism fascinated him.  For a short time in 1918, Reichel attended a school of modern art.  He met Paul Klee in 1919, when both artists had a studio at castle Werneck in Munich, an encounter which was decisive in his development as a painter.  But compared to Klee's work, Reichel's work was less influenced by academical experiments, anything objective, claculating, ironic or caricaturistic.

The artists stayed in contact even when Klee went to Bauhaus.
During his visits to Dessau, Reichel met Kandinsky, Gropius and Feininger.  In 1929, Reichel went to Paris, where he made friends with the photographer Brassaï.  In 1936 a life-long contact with Henry Miller began, whom Reichel taught watercolor painting.
From 1939 onwards, Hans Reichel was interned in various camps until he managed to escape and return to Paris in 1944.  After the end of the war the artist continued to develop his art consistently, with improvisation and the expression of feelings being constant themes of his work.
Hans Reichel died in Paris on December 7, 1958.

Hans Reichel's work was honored in a comprehensive exhibition shown in Cologne and at the Hanover "Kestner Gesellschaft" in 1960.  In 2005 the "Museum im Kulturspeicher" in Wuerzburg showed a retrospective entitled "Ordnung und Chaos".
