Erich Paulsen was born 1932 in a small village near Berlin. He studied in Berlin at the Meisterschule fur Malerei. Further studies followed in Italy, France and Spain. The artist prefers to paint landscapes and in particular subjects around his home in Lower Saxony. The coast and the old houses of the fishermen with their red roofs fascinated him a well as the heathern found as often in that part of Germany. His unique palette knife technique and his wonderful colours give his paintings a particular flair and make them stand out from all other works of art. A great number of exhibitions in Germany (eg. Hamburg, Munich) and abroad as in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Stockholm and Sidney resulted in excellent critiques.
