About the artist:
Walter Otto Grimm was born as the son of German parents in the USA and moved to Dresden with his mother after the death of his father in 1908. In 1915 he began to study law in Leipzig; at the same time he began to engage in literary and artistic activities.
After the USA entered the war in 1917, Grimm was considered an unwanted foreigner in Germany and had to report daily to a police station. As a foreigner he had to give up his studies.
In Dresden he joined the expressionist circle around Felixmüller, Stiemer and Tappert. He belonged to the expressionist artist group "Der schwarze Turm".
From 1918 he worked for numerous opera and ballet productions and created stage sets for Peer Gynt and Macbeth.
Despite his artistic success Walter Otto Grimm suffered from his discrimination as a foreigner and from his increasing loneliness.
In the spring of 1919 Walter Otto Grimm took his own life. It is thanks to his partner Lotte Haunstein that some of his works have been preserved.

In 1986 around 70 works by Grimm were exhibited in the Bodo Niemann Gallery in Berlin, which published an extensive catalogue (400 copies).

    Response by seller
    Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.

    I have informed this friendly Dutch buyer that I am away for Easter. Therefore, the shipment took place late. As confirmed by the buyer, he received a flawless extremely large book that was carefully packed. I am not Amazon but a private seller and shipping by Hermes during holidays (Easter, Good Friday) needs even longer.

    It is unfortunate that in our present unfriendly and rude time also this
    buyer is unfriendly and does not give a positive feedback for a perfect and mint article.
