There has been a lot of confusion regarding this artist over the last 50+ years and the various pseudonyms that he used. His signatures also vary greatly from painting to painting.

His style was often referred to as the new German Impressionism and many of his older landscapes feature the Black Forest region of Bavaria, while other paintings include European park scenes, Venetian scenes, cityscapes, seascapes & lake scenes, mountains scenes, floral still lifes, portrait works and nudes. In more recent years, his art has been defined and referred to as Post-Impressionism.
