Paul Elsas

1896 Stuttgart — 1981 Vence

From 1912 to 1919 he studied at the School of Arts and Crafts in Stuttgart under Rudolf Rochga, and at the Stuttgart State Academy of Fine Arts under Christian Speyer, Christian Landenberger and Adolf Hölzel. In 1919, Elsas moved to Munich and took part in the New Munich Secession. With the support of his patron, Alfred Wolf, Elsas moved to Paris in 1928. From 1932 onwards, he and Pablo Picasso began experimenting with a new hand-printing process: Monotype Erwino. At the same time, he was also successful as a set designer, interior designer, commercial artist, and as a teacher at a painting school. From 1933 onwards, Elsas’ Jewish origins meant that he had no more chance of exhibiting in Germany.
