About

About the artist: Wolfgang P. Wolff was born September 30, 1909 in St. Louis, Alsace Lorraine, at which time the territory was part of Germany.In 1934 Wolff and his wife fled Nazi oppression with a daring escape to Tahiti, leaving behind family home, country, and most of their worldly possessions. His artistic talent was recognized while in Tahiti and had an early art show in Papeete at the Bougainville that led him to have confidence to pursue an art career—although he never had any art training. In 1939, with the commencement of World War II, he was imprisoned in a prison camp by the French on Tahiti because of his German birth. Despite his harsh life in prison he continued to create artwork until his release in 1945. Wolfgang, his wife Max and their only child came to the U.S. in 1948. Wolfgang Wolff had exhibitions in Australia, Argentina and the US. His artwork was included in a book by Al Kassel, "I Went Native" and it was reviewed in the New York Times (which included one of his half tone drawings from the book) in 1939. The work of Wolfgang Wolff is held in numerous collections in Tahiti, Australia, Argentina and the U.S. Wolfgang Wolff died in Los Angeles on August 20, 1994
