Georg Pauli


Georg Pauli (1855-1935) was a Swedish artist who mixed Cubism with the figurative. Thus, taking the best of the movement created by Picasso and combining it with the Greco-Roman ideal of the academic male figurative. He was also the author of several art-related books. On top of publishing art books, he was a successful painter, art teacher, and portrait artist (both men and women). He called Stockholm his home and was a student of the Royal Swedish Academy of The Fine Arts. His works can be seen at Sweden’s fine arts museum, Nationalmuseum. Go her for more information:
