GŁnther Spaltmann - Verfolgt/Pursued

GŁnther Spaltmann (1914-1994) was born in Duisburg, Germany. He painted throughout his life and exhibited his works in Germany in the 1960s and in the United States in the late 1970s.

Spaltmann’s work was influenced by prominent styles of early twentieth-century modernism, including Post-Impressionism, German Expressionism, Cubism, and the works of Paul Cťzanne, Emil Nolde, August Macke, Wassily Kandinsky, and Paul Klee. From these sources, Spaltmann formulated a personal style that emphasized the visual and emotional power of color.

Spaltmann’s art and life were impacted greatly by the political events of World War II. In his work, he comes to terms with the conflict between his humanist philosophy and his life during this period of inhumane activity. Spaltmann’s paintings respond to the effects of life in Nazi Germany, so vividly suggested in his painting Verfolgt from 1939. Despite the pain, horror, and suffering he witnessed and experienced in the physical world, Spaltmann, through his art, expressed a visual world of joy, light, and color to take its place.

The Juniata College Museum of Art would like to thank Mrs. Rosemarie Siebke and Dr. William Russey for making this exhibition possible.
