Text

Paul Grunwaldt took painting lessons at the department of applied arts of the KPM (Royal Porcelain Manufacture) and at the training institute of the Museum of Applied Arts. After World War I, he became a member of the left-wing artist group “Novembergruppe”, to which amongst others also belonged Otto Dix, Hannah Höch, George Grosz, John Heartfield and with which he participated in the “Große Berliner Kunst-Ausstellung” in 1921. His still lifes of this period are characterized by angular broken forms and a reduced colour spectrum, but also by the opposition of corresponding round forms and a dramatic lightning. Thus Grunwaldt combined in his very own way the artistic tendencies of the period like Cubism, Purism and New Objectivity.
