Sulamith Wülfing (1901 – 1989)











Sulamith Wülfing (1901 – 1989)

"My drawings are a visual representation of my deepest feelings - pleasure, fear, sorrow, happiness, humor. And, to people attuned to my compositions, they may well be mirrors of their own experiences.
It is because of this that I have left the explanation of the drawings completely to the viewer, so that they are not bound by my interpretation of what each picture should be.
For me it is not a matter of creating illustrations to fit nursery rhyme themes. My ideas come to me from many sources, and in such harmony with my personal experiences that I can turn them into these fairy compositions.
My Angels are my consolers, leaders, companions, guards. And dwarfs often show me the small ironies and other things to make me smile even in life's most awesome events."
~ Sulamith Wülfing
She was born in Germany in 1901 and raised by very spiritual parents (her father was a Theosophist). The artist within her burst forth at the age of four. She had a very definite and personal style firmly developed before she received her first formal training at the Art College in Wuppertal. Graduating in 1921, she spent the next decade painting her vision of the world. When she married in 1932, she and her husband started a company to print and distribute her work. It was in existence until his death in 1976. Source: http://www.bpib.com/wulfing.htm
