- Full Description
Angels and ethereal spirits are delightfully captured in the magical paintings of Sulamith Wülfing (1901-1989). Born in Elberfeld, Rhine Province, Germany, as a child Sulamith had visions of angels, fairies, gnomes, and nature spirits. She first began drawing these creatures at the age of four. The visions continued throughout her life, and directly inspired her paintings. Wülfing graduated from the Art College in Wuppertal in 1921, and in 1932 married Otto Schulze, a professor at the Art College. Together, they created the Sulamith Wülfing Verlag (publishing house).
Highly successful, they published a series of albums in the 1930s and beyond, collecting her paintings as mounted color plates in handsome softcover editions. She also created illustrations for Hans Andersen fairy tales. Today all of these self-published books are highly collectible. She also began doing calendars, and this continues a tradition that began clear back in the 1960s.
During World War II, the industrial area around Wuppertal became a bombing target, and Wülfing's house was destroyed, along with many of her paintings.
Her family became separated during the war, when she received a false report of her husband's death on the Russian front and fled to France with her only child; they were later reunited. Wülfing considered the religious teacher Jiddu Krishnamurti her spiritual mentor and guide, and believed his influence helped her through difficult times. Wülfing died in 1989 at the age of 88.
