Röhm, Hans, German painter, etcher and lithographer (1877-1956). Autograph quotation signed.

Munich, 17. III. 1919.

Oblong 8vo (postcard). ¾ page.


Inscribed to the German dermatologist Alwin Scharlau: "Bei der Malerei ist streng genommen alles Täuschung außer der Farbe. Das Zurückliegen von Raum ist Täuschung, Flaches erscheint rund und Feststehendes bewegt [...]".

Starting out at the Kunstgewerbeschule in his native Nuremberg, Röhm completed his studies at the Munich Academy from 1898 to 1902, where he was appointed professor in 1926. His oeuvre includes city views of Nuremberg and other towns as well as religious motifs and portraits.

Traces of 2 angular folds; small creases near lower left corner; a few tiny ink spots near upper margin; some marks in coloured pencil on verso. Self-addressed by the collector on the reverse. The Mecklenburg physician Scharlau (b. 1888) assembled a collection of artists' autographs by personal application.
