Paul Feiler German 1918-2013
Painter of non-figurative images in oils. Born in Frankfurt, his family moved to London in 1936. Paul Feiler studied at the Slade School from 1936-39, subsequently settling in Cornwall where he was associated with the St Ives painters, particularly with Peter Lanyon. He exhibited at the Redfern Gallery from 1933 to 1959, at the Royal Academy from 1943 to 1972, and has shown in provincial and London galleries and abroad. His work is represented in collections including the Tate Gallery. From 1946 to 1975 he taught at the West of England College of Art, Bristol. Initially influenced by Cezanne and by his Cornish environment, in the mid 1960s connections with the landscape disappeared from his work and he has worked since then with a restricted range of geometric forms.
