German painter Paul Heimen lived at the Lower Rhine. He was a painter of landscapes and nature motives. After World War I he went to Venlo in the Netherlands for economic reasons to work as a graphic designer, an activity which he held intermittently from 1918-67 in Venlo. From 1927-34 he studied art at the "Institut voor Hooger Schoone Kunsten" in Antwerp which was why he exhibited as a Belgian at the 1932 Olympic Art Competitions in Los Angeles. Heimen then worked in Antwerp in his own studio. In 1937 he was awarded the Prize of the City Rheydt. After World War II, he moved to Louisenburg near Straelen, where he lived until his death. His main theme was the Lower Rhine, which he represented in still lifes, nudes, portraits and landscapes.
