zur  Biographie

As a member of the artists group Quadriga – the core group of German informal painting, formed in Frankfurt in 1952 – Schultze developed an independent style of abstract painting with a lyrical character. The essentially romantic quality of this deliberate chromatic composition – with thinned oils that spread out across the canvas in delicate colours – is emphasised by the title from Greek mythology. King Endymion was the lover of Selene, goddess of the moon; Zeus put him to sleep eternally to protect him from aging and death.
