Jörg and Wolfgang

Jörg Hensel (painter) and Wolfgang Friedrich (engraver)

I have been waiting a long time to post the work of Jörg Hensel. I first saw his work in a photo Jim Horan took of Wolfgang Friedrich’s engravings. I later learned that Jörg did the painting.

Mail Attachment-8

I visited Wolfgang’s booth at the Kulmbach Show 2015 and was treated to even more of the work of Jörg. You have a winning combination when a great engraving is painted by a great painter.

I tried to obtain Jörg’s email but for some reason the email addresses I received did not work. I don’t know if that was a problem with the address or the servers, but I persisted and finally got an email that worked. I was thrilled. Here are some interesting facts about Jörg:

  • his first contact with tin figures was at the age of 5 (to play with them)
  • the first painting came at age 7 or 8, and he painted with watercolors from his school set
  • to this time, he has been in contact with the collector-group in Leipzig at the museum in Dölitz
  • this is when he began painting with o il paints and came in contact with the Master Karl Stemmler
  • starting from these days he paints with oil color (with the exception of some experiments)
  • his favorite brush is Jax hair round No. 0
  • his advice for improving you skill, he writes, “I have a simple tip: paint, paint, and paint…(on the best each day!)”
