Winfred Gaul Winfred Gaul - Biography

Winfred Gaul, a master of many styles, has gained international fame in numerous epochs of abstract post-war art.
In den 1950s, Winfred Gaul, who had studied in Stuttgart with Willi Baumeister and Rolf Henninger, was one of the key figures of the Informel; and he was among the first artists who paved the pathed for something innovative and new as early as around 1960: With the reduced "Wischbildern" [Wipe Pictures] and "Weißen Bildern" [White Pictures], Winfred Gaul strode away from the Informel and soon attained a strictly geometric signal art geared at the symbolism of an urbane environment (traffic signs). The emphasis on color gained in importance and finally led to analytic painting in the 1970s. The variety of Gaul's oeuvre is revived in multi-part pictures in his later period of creation.
Works by Winfred Gaul are in possession of renowned museums. e.g. the Musée d'Art Moderne de Céret, the Museum Folkwang in Essen or the SMAK Gent. In 2005 the Dortmund 'Museum am Ostwall' honored Winfred Gaul with the retrospective "In Bildern denken" [Thinking in Pictures].
