Biography from net: "German painter, Gerhard Hoehme was born in Greppin near Dessau on February 5, 1920, and was a pilot during the Second World War before beginning his career as a painter. His enthusiasm for flying had a considerable influence on his art, particularly the viewpoint from above. Hoehme only began studying in Halle after the war in 1948 at the age of twenty-eight. He went to the Kunstakademie in Düsseldorf in 1952. In the same year, he met the later director of the Galerie 22 Düsseldorf, Jean-Pierre Wilhelm, who introduced him to Jean Fautrier and Jean Dubuffet, the most important artists of Informel in Paris. Since then, Hoehme was a follower of the Informel Art and became one of the most important painters of German Informel Art." E
