Paula Wimmer occupies one of the front ranks among the 20th century female artists. Following her affinity, she studied art. Overcoming impressionist tendencies in her early period of creation, Paula Wimmer soon attained an individual expressionist style, which became more and more sophisticated, among others, by taking drawing classes with Adolf Hölzel in Dachau, where she lived as of 1916. Paintings by Paula Wimmer captivate the observer with their delicate coloring and a both confident and easy duct, with which she created landscapes and genre scenes with a merry atmosphere. Her graphic art is also of a remarkable clarity, showing a fine line management. Paula Wimmer was also in contact with avant-garde circles, which gave her fruitful inspiration. She was defamed as 'degenerate' by the National Socialists, however, after World War II her oeuvre was rediscovered and honored in numerous exhibitions.
