Ursula Schultze-Bluhm

 "Ursula Schultze-Bluhm: A leading German painter and etcher of the latter twentieth century Ursula Schultze-Bluhm moved to Berlin in 1938 and began her art studies there. With the commencement of the Second World War (1939-1945) she was ordered to work in the government bureaucracy and then returned to her studies and began exhibiting her art after the war in the Amerika-Haus-Programme (1945-1953).
 Ursula Schultze-Bluhm first visited Paris in 1951. Shortly thereafter her work came to the attention of Jean Dubuffet who in 1954 featured her prints and paintings in his famous 'Musee de l'Art Brut'. In the following year (1955) she married another leading German etcher, Bernard Schultze. Together the artists lived and worked not only in Germany and France but in New York and Washington (1964-1967), Leningrad (1970), Ceylon and Thailand (1973), Mexico and Guatemala (1975), and Hong Kong and Bali (1977).Ursula Schultze-Bluhm's first solo exhibition took place in Frankfurt in 1954. After that date her art was the subject of many exhibitions in cities such as Paris, Hanover, Heidelberg, Dusseldorf, Munich, Stuttgart, Hamburg, Basel and Vienna.Like the art of her husband, Ursula Schultze-Bluhm dedicated her work to the creation of a private universe or individual mythology. Memories, unconscious associations and fantasies play key roles in her great, Surrealist art. Selbst Portrait is one of her finest works of graphic art."(artoftheprint.com)
