The Song of Solomon

About

Lithograph from the 1970 portfolio titled The Song of Songs by Paul Wunderlich, the German Surrealist painter, sculptor and graphic artist. As a young student Wunderlich attended the Landeskunstschule in Hamburg, where his classmates included Horst Janssen and Reinhard Drenkhahn. He graduated in 1951 and then worked as a lecturer at the Hochschule für bildende Künste Hamburg, teaching lithography and etching. In 1951 he printed for Emil Nolde ("The King and his men", etching) and in 1952 for Oskar Kokoschka, the graphics suite "Ann Eliza Reed" of eleven lithographs. Following his realistic period that ended in the late 1950s, he developed his characteristic Surrealist erotic style. His early works show dismembered body, disproportioned in front of an empty background. During the 1960s he was influenced by art movements such as Art Deco and Art Nouveau. In the 1960 cycle of lithographs "qui s'explique" was seized by the Hamburg prosecutor for indecent depictions. However, Wunderlich received the 1961 Prize of the Youth for graphics. With the prize money, he moved to Paris where he worked in the workshop Deskjoberts. In 1963 he returned to Hamburg and as a successor of George Gresko was professor at the Hochschule until 1968. In 1969 he started the creation of bronze sculptures and statues, influenced by Salvador Dalí. In 1976, he issued a limited edition of multicolored heliographs that illustrated James Joyce's Giacomo Joyce.
