Stefan Nützel

is an accomplished oil painter, who will give us a lecture on colour theory and show his painting method.

Nuetzel is born in Bayreuth, Germany. Inspired by Balthus’ sublte paintings, he became his student in Paris. Balthus suggested a stay in Italy, in order to imbibe Caravaggio’s light and dark paintings. Subsequently Nuetzel visited Madrid where Velasquez taught him loose brushwork. A further station of his apprenticeship was Nuernberg, where he studied with Johannes Gruetzke for six years. Through him Nuetzel learnt integrity, courage and above all, that painting also requires a sense of humour. The last period were extensive painting trips with Sargent. His plein air paintings made Nuetzels paintings see the light.

He currently lives and paints in Vienna, Austria.
