Paulsen Erich b.1932

 Erich Paulsen was born in 1932 in the small town of Treuenbrietzen just outside Berlin and spent his early childhood in the region called "Mark Brandenburg." His family moved West after the war, in search for safety- so it was Hamburg , where the aspiring young artist attended the Master-Class for painting (Meisterschule der Malerei) from which he graduated with honours.

 With growing success he could afford studying-trips throughout  Europe- Italy, France ,  Spain to name just a few.

The themes of his paintings are mostly landscapes. The raw beauty of the River landscapes along  the Weser and Elbe-River has always fascinated him, and Port scenes are also amongst his favourite subjects.

Erich has attracted high acclaim throughout the world. His work has been recognised internationally in a number of exhibitions from New York to Sydney

All this-together with his very personal feeling for colours and the bold palette-knife- techniques so typical for him, have made Paulsen's paintings cherished Collectors-pieces worldwide
