Catalogue Note

Johann Walter-Kurau was born in Mitau, Latvia. In 1889, at the age of 20, he entered the St. Petersburg Art Academy, where he became friendly with Kiuschenko and Vladimir Makowski. In 1897, Walter-Kurau traveled to Paris and Berlin; he exhibited with the Mir Iskusstva group, founded by Alexandre Benois, Léon Bakst and Sergei Diaghilev as a Russian art movement and accompanying magazine. Walter-Jurau moved to Dresden in 1906, then onto Berlin, where he opened an atelier and art school before his death in 1932.
