Rolf Mueller-Landau (born June 5, 1903 in Kia Ying Chow, China , December 2, 1956 in Bad Bergzabern ) was a German painter and co-founder of the Palatine Secession .

From 1922 to 1929 he studied at the State Academy of Fine Arts in Karlsruhe (at that time "Badische Landeskunstschule") and from 1924 to 1929 master school with Ernst Gustav Würtenberger . In 1930, he settled down as a freelance artist in Landau, and since then added "Landau" to his name. In 1935 he married Hermione Siering. In 1945 the family moved to nearby Heuchelheim after the destruction of the apartment and studio of Landau. In the years 1945/46 he founded the Pfälzische Sezession with friends and won, among others, Hans Purrmann , Edvard Frank , Werner Gilles , HAP Grieshaber and Gustav Seitz as members. From 1951 to 1955, Rolf Müller-Landau was a member of the executive board of the Deutscher Künstlerbundes .Müller-Landau died after severe illness in Bad Bergzabern in the Palatinate.

In Landau (Palatinate), a street in the "Malerviertel" was named after the artist.

The early work of Müller-Landaus was determined mainly by Impressionist works of strict composition and craftsmanship perfection. After 1945 he was increasingly influenced by the art of France, which had previously been difficult to access in Germany, especially by Georges Braque , Paul Cézanne , Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso , and his work achieved a supraregional recognition.

Particularly noteworthy are his color-cut monotypes, a printing technique developed by him: hand-painted wood and linocuts were printed on a thin Chinese Chinese paper. Rolf Müller-Landau thus succeeded in merging painting and print graphics. Each individual color section monotype thus became unique. Please click here to ask a question
