The painter Georg Edmund Pielmann, born in Frankfurt in 1923, lived and worked in Munich, Italy and Switzerland. His first encounters with art were made possible by his grandmother, who worked as a respected art dealer in Hanover.
His teachers included Egon Schiffer at the Städelschule in Frankfurt, Toni Stadler at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich and Oskar Kokoschka, with whom he had a special teacher-pupil friendship. Numerous exhibitions and awards at home and abroad followed. His wild expressive brushstrokes, intense color contrasts and sparingly used contours dominate his works. In addition to the representations of the still life, it is the sustained examination of the female nude and intense portraits that make up his work.
Das expressive Portrait “Assorto in Pensiero” satmmt aus der Privatsammlung Schäfer. Der Düsseldorfer Sammler erwarb mehrere Arbeiten des Künstlers direkt aus dem Nachlass von dessen Tochter Claudia Pielmann. Georg Edmund Pielmann ging 1957 in die Schweiz nach Lugano und zog später an den Lago Maggiore, nach Luino in Italien, wo er im Alter von 62 Jahren verstarb. Das Bild hat keine genaue Datierung, wie die meisten Bilder von Pielmann, stammt aber wahrscheinlich aus den 60er Jahren.
