Short information about the artist

Arnold Balwé was born in Dresden as the son of a Dutch consul and grew up in the South African port city of Durban in his early youth, from where he would later move to Lower Bavaria. In 1920 he decided to study at the Academy in Antwerp, but soon interrupted his training to go to Italy for a year. After his return, he found his final artistic imprint under Professor Carl Caspar at the Munich Academy of Fine Arts from 1922 to 1927. Balwé is one of Casper’s most important students and is awarded the Alexander von Humboldt Prize while still a student. Already in his younger years, he settled in Übersee-Feldwies on Lake Chiemsee, where he undertook numerous study trips throughout Europe.
