ERNST MAROW

Ernst Marow, born 1934 in Königsberg in Neumark (now in Poland), studied painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Berlin, student of Heinrich Graf Luckner and Gerhard Fietz. Marow decided in 1969 against the spirit of abstraction, burned his non-representational images, and turned to nature and the real reality.
