Paulsen Erich b.1932
Erich Paulsen was born in 1932 in the small town of Treuenbrietzen just outside Berlin and spent his early childhood in the region called "Mark Brandenburg." His family moved West after the war, in search for safety- so it was Hamburg , where the aspiring young artist attended the Master-Class for painting (Meisterschule der Malerei) from which he graduated with honours.
With growing success he could afford studying-trips throughout Europe- Italy, France , Spain to name just a few.
The themes of his paintings are mostly landscapes. The raw beauty of the River landscapes along the Weser and Elbe-River has always fascinated him, and Port scenes are also amongst his favourite subjects.
Erich has attracted high acclaim throughout the world. His work has been recognised internationally in a number of exhibitions from New York to Sydney
