Friedrich Ludwig

It was a small sensation when the jurist and collector Sigurd Marien rediscovered the expressive realist Friedrich Ludwig, who had been wrongly forgotten, through a lucky coincidence in 1984: A baroque closet that was offered by an art dealer contained paintings by the artist.
The son of a farmer Friedrich Ludwig, who had studied at the famous Paris Académie Julian as of 1926, created extremely expressive landscapes, nudes and genre scenes. Friedrich Ludwig was defamed as "degenerate" by the National Socialists and imposed with an occupational ban. Later the mentally ill artist claimed to have burnt all his works and thus fell into oblivion. Today his oeuvre, which comprises some 2000 known works, appears as that of a master of coloring and important expressive realist, who at times showed notions of neoclassicism.
The Friedrich-Ludwig-Museum in Wieslet, the artists place of birth, shows the works by the rediscovered artist.
