Biography

Walther Klemm was a famous German woodblock carver and illustrator (Goethe's Reineke Fuchs, Grimm's fairy tales and other children's books). The topic of skating was particularly close to his heart, and he depicted it in his paintings, woodcuts and etchings. He was made a member of the Berlin Secession in 1910 and beginning in 1913 lectured at the School of Visual Arts in Weimar. After World War II, Klemm had a leading role in the reconstruction of the Art Academy of Weimar, where he was named an honorary senator in 1952. He won the bronze medal with his painting Skating on the Tennis Court in 1928.
