Born on 19th May 1880 in Neuss, died on 9th July 1952 in Wittlaer. As an extremely talented for art, he was noticed at the age of 13 by the famous German painter Achenbach and admitted at the fine Art Academy in Dusseldorf. He studied under guidance of Heinrich Lauenstein and Artur Kampf and later with Eugene Ducker. His study trips to Italy (1898) and particularly Holland (1899) have made a strong influence on his painting style. In 1903 he completed his art studied in Dusseldorf. In the following years, his art style was oriented toward the Hague School and the Barbizon School of impressionism. In 1909 he organized together with his fellow painters several exhibitions where his paintings were clearly influenced by the French Impressionism.

This lexicon is a result of my 15 years long period of researching & documenting the personalities and the artworks of the foreign painters, sculptors, illustrators, and photographers having visited different spots of the geographic territory of Macedonia, there having created works of art there over a 100-years long period i.e. between 1850-1950. Their presence and artwork in the Macedonian milieus represent a notable cultural heritage to the international linkage of the ethnic Macedonians as well as to all the ethnicities living in the picturesque territory of Macedonia and the cultures of modern-day countries spread over parts of the geographic territory of Macedonia. Witnessing the artistic contributions of the foreign artist, we are proud of their Macedonia-themed creative works and experiences. I believe that their artworks, having been inspired and created over the vast region of Macedonia, unite us all in these challenging times, and under the facts and the values of the artistic beauty.
