Heinz Zander (1939-)

"Heinz Zander, born 2 October 1939 in Wolfen, is a German painter, draughtsman, graphic artist, illustrator and writer. He studied under Bernhard Heisig at the Hochschule für Grafik und Buchkunst Leipzig from 1959 to 1964. From 1967 to 1970 he was Meisterschüler under Fritz Cremer at the Academy of Arts in Berlin. Since 1970 he lives and works in Leipzig and is associated with the Leipzig School.

His oil paintings are influenced by mannerism, something he took further than any other German in his generation. His subjects are often drawn from mythology, ancient literature, medieval legends and fairy tales. He has also written novels, short stories and essays." - ( 23.12.2019)
