Karl Tratt

1900 Frankfurt am Main — 1937 Frankfurt am Main

Karl Vinzenz Tratt was born in Sindlingen near Frankfurt am Main. After finishing school, he did an apprenticeship as a plasterer. In 1924 he registered at the Städel Art Institute in Frankfurt am Main, where he studied painting under Franz Karl Delavilla. In 1926 he was admitted to the master class of Max Beckmann. His fellow students included Theo Garvé, Leo Maillet, Marie-Louise von Motesiczky and Georg Heck. In 1930 and 1932, Tratt exhibited in the art gallery of F. A. C. Prestel in Frankfurt am Main, and in 1931 at the Berlin Secession. In 1933, he participated in the “Young Frankfurt” exhibition and in 1934 in the “Contemporary Frankfurt Landscape Painters” exhibition held by the Frankfurt Art Association. Tratt struggled greatly with the economic conditions of the time, though his fellow students and friends tried to help by buying his paintings.
