Uhlman, Fred (1901-85)

(1901-1985) Born in Stuttgart, Germany. Uhlman left Germany for Paris in 1933 and began painting there as a self taught artist. In 1936 he moved to London, where he married, and soon established his reputation as a painter. Although he lived in London, he spent summers in the Croesor Valley, Gwynedd, Wales. He held his first solo exhibition at the Galerie Le Niveau in Paris in 1935, and in London he exhibited at the Zwemmer Gallery in 1938. From then on Uhlman exhibited regularly in one man shows as well as mixed exhibitions throughout Britain, a full retrospective held at Leighton House in London in 1968. His work is represented in many important public galleries, including the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge and Victoria & Albert Museum.
