Description

Alfred Pohl (German, 1928–2019) was born in Essen. He studied art in Trier, Lüneburg and Hannover. In 1965 Pohl worked in the Paris studio of Johnny Friedlaender. He taught art in Peru (1967–70) and in Colombia (1972–74). Even in later years, many of his images would feature South American landscapes and themes. In 1972 Pohl returned to northwest Germany, settling in Göttingen.

Pohl pushed forward the great German woodcutting tradition, adding rich color and rhythmic design to the stark shapes and emotional power we associate with the earlier expressionists.
