To Ellen

This blog is made to the honor of my grandmother Ellen Elisabeth Thomsen who was a modern woman .
She was born in Randers in Denmark 1895 and died in Copenhagen 1976.
She had long salmon red hair down to her hips. It was braided and put up with lots of hairpins to make it look short.

Thursday the 21 of November one of Denmark's finest painters went to meat his creator.
He will be missed by his close family 
relatives and  artist friends,
  by all those who admired and loved this outstanding Artist.

Paul Stoltze was born 1922 in Skørping in Denmark
He studied at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen
Under the proffessors Wilhem Lundstrøm and Kræsten Iversen
from 1947 to 1952
Since 1953 he lived and worked on the island Bornholm in Denmark.

 I take the chance and hope the copyrights on this 3 pictures
underneath will not prevent me from showing them.
The 3 pictures are from the book the Journalist and Author
Peter Tiemroth wrote about Paul Stoltze , Bornholm's Art Museum 2005
The quality of the photos are not perfect, since
this are  photos of the printed photos in the book and I have no 
possibility to compare with the colors of the original paintings.
