Dietz Edzard (1893-1963)

Dietz (Dietrich Hermann) Edzard (1893-1963) was born in Bremen.
From 1911, he studied painting at Max Beckmann in Berlin, and worked in the Netherlands thereafter.
In 1927, he moved to France, and in 1929 the first exhibition of his work took place in Paris at the Jeu de Paume, a museum exclusively devoted to Impressionist masters. He got married to the artist Suzanne Eisendieck (1908-1998) in 1938.
During the Second World War, he was captured in the detention and deportation camp Les Milles.
His works are held by the collections of international art museums, and by American and Canadian private collections.
Guiding themes of his creativity are the circus and the theatre.
